About Copyright

Copyright law protects the work of authors or creators.  You can only reproduce someone else's work with their permission.

The way an idea is expressed or shared as a work is covered by copyright. What is a work? Examples include a book, magazine article, photo, interview, television program, blog post, computer software, cartoon, letter, tweet, music or dvd.

In your assignments and presentations this means you

  • must cite and reference all works you used to find your information


  • may not have permission from the author or creator to copy and include parts of their work in your own work.


This 1 minute YouTube video explains that copyright and plagiarism are two different things.
