This copyright and protecting ownership of certain documents and online work is pretty tricky to me. I never knew so much went into ensuring that due credit is issued when it comes to personal online work like this. I NEVER thought to ever teach anything about Creative Commons and protecting rights to claim one’s work as their own, especially if it is distributed across the internet; however, since it is the law and so much stress is placed on that issue, I will definitely make my class aware of the situation now. I will use Creative Commons to make sure that I am displaying certain media (even if it is for education) in a manner that reflects law-abiding actions. I know now that I cannot just show any and all videos to a classroom audience unless that is what the media or document was made for, or unless I have permission from the owner.
I understand that even the 23 Things had to gain permission to display the works because this seems to be a spin-off from 43 Things. This is interesting.
