Internet Copyright Myths
No © Symbol Means No Copyright Exists Material On the Net Is Automatically OK to Copy It’s Free Advertising and Distribution for the Author Attribution Makes Using the Material Legal Copyrighted Material on a Free Website Is OK to Use Material On the Web is Public Domain I’m a Teacher…Fair Use Protects Me CyberEthics Page 10

Notes:
The Hague Accords (1998) give copyright protection the instant material is created and saved in any retrievable format. A © symbol is not required. Attribution or author credit provides NO protection from copyright rules. Failing to include author or publisher metadata may yield additional penalties. Fair Use Doctrine allows limited use of copyrighted material for Research, Scholarship, Criticism, Commentary, News Reporting, or Non-Profit Education. Posting a DILBERT cartoon to your school web site is a clear copyright violation…Fair Use will NOT protect you.
