Have I been performing illegal acts almost everyday???

I just wanted to talk about the Week 3 pathway book about the Australian Copyright Law.  WOWW!! I am literally completely shocked that I didn’t know anything about the Copyright Law and how using pictures from Google or YouTube clips whenever I want in the classroom is actually illegal!! I actually never really gave it much thought because it wasn’t as if I was telling people that I made those pictures or videos, but now that I think about I really do feel quite guilty about it all now.

I have looked at the Australian Copyright Website and have found a file all about whether or not I need to be asking permission and how to go about asking permission.  A lot of it is what is in the pathway book but the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom really helped me understand it a bit more so I thought I’d share it here.
