Decision Making: Copyright Law for the Internet
The term copyright applies to the exclusive legal right to reproduce, publish, or sell a
product (in its literary, musical, or artistic form) by its originator. Before you download or
copy graphics, maps, images, sounds, or information from Web sites that you visit, you
need to find out if and how you can use the materials and then, if necessary, get
permission from the owner of the content. Some Web sites include their copyright and permission
request information on their home pages. Some Web sites indicate that the material is free,
but almost everything on the Internet is copyrighted.
If you perform research on the Web, you might encounter the term fair use . This term
refers to the legal use of copyrighted material for educational or nonprofit purposes, as
opposed to commercial profit. Information that is considered factual and materials that
are so old that copyright protection no longer exists fall under the category of fair use. You
should still give credit to any Web site that you use in your research.
By carefully checking the copyright and permission policies of the Web sites you visit,
you can ensure that you make the right decision regarding if and how you can use the
content you find and avoid violating any copyright laws.
