Copy, right?Posted: November 15, 2011
I feel that I do pay attention to most copyrights and regulations. I have never downloaded a movie or song without paying for it. I do feel that once something has been paid for once it is okay to share it. I have purchased CDs and made copies for my friends and they have done the same for me. I do watch movies online on youtube or stagevu without paying for them. I guess this is not good sometimes becuase I didn’t pay to view it the first time. If I go see the movie that I watch via stageview in the theatres this means I have paid to view it one, so any means that I watch it in the future by should be okay, right?
I admit I do somtimes copy pictures that are not meant to be copied. I was doing a research prroject on clothing in 1905 for another class and I needed photos from that era to see what people were wearing way back when. Some of the sites I went to wouldn’t let me right click and copy the image, so I took a screen shot of it. I do always give credit it I use an internet source in a project or paper. I think that the copyright rules and regulations do serve a purpose and creators deserve credit for their pieces.
