Copy Right or Copy Cat?
So, I try to give proper diggs to the people whose photos I steal from the internet. I admit it, I have been in internet copycat, a copy-and-paste thief in the past….but like going to jail, and receiving therapy and rehabilitation, I am better now (phew!)…I am converted, I now am an upstanding copy-righter, and no longer a copy-wronger.
I am trying to learn how to use Creative Commons (CC) a site that links people sharing with people….and yet as a dumb-ass I still managed to mess it up. All the images on my blog previous to this post, have not been cited with proper credit to those artists. I did take most images from the CC link-site, and even gave credit, but CC is not a place; it is a dispatch for the goods–like an operator assessing where to connect your 911 needs (firefighters, police or ambulance, etc..) So, here is my question: Should I re-right my copy-wrong?
As one of the most wonderful champions of good teaching practice, Mr. Harry Wong states about: “Beg, Borrow, or Steal” to make the best learning happen—and i add: if you steal…give props. It’s just nice.
