Mastering Copyright and Fair Use

Full Copyright and Fair Use WebQuest (including writing prompt and quiz)


  1. Click on the link above to open the Webquest. Use your first and last name (space between the two).
  2. Titles of the three Webquest videos are: What is a Copyright, Do I Have A Copyright, Getting a Copyright_Fair Use_Plagiarism -- See the comment below for the location of the videos - they are located on your computer as well as on the quiz; they are NOT the videos embedded on this wiki page. *
  3. Review the PDF version of the PowerPoint (located on the V drive of the 149 lab) or view the PPT embedded below. *
  4. Taking the quiz - Click TAKE QUIZ to begin. DO NOT use your browser's Back button or you will be kicked out of the quiz. Your grade will be submitted to my e-mail for scoring. Each question on the quiz is worth .33 points - so, the quiz will carry the same weight as a Ning blog posting.

* NOTE - The video files and a PDF version of the PowerPoint presentation are available on your computer through My Computer > HOLBus149 (V). I recommend that you run the video and PPT from your computer instead of from the Internet.
