So if you read my last post you know I was really excited to create an infographic about unpaid internships for my final project in my Writing & Digital Media class. Unfortunately, I missed the mark and had to chose a different topic for this assignment. However, I will probably still create the infographic in my spare time so be on the lookout for a post that features it!
Anyway, my new topic is Creativity & Copyright. I chose this topic because I am interested in the relationship between the ever-growing resources available in the digital age and people who use and share these materials. It is extremely important for people using these sources to know the legality behind what they are doing, but many people are left in the dark because copyright litigation is very complex and most education systems do not thoroughly explain these rules. I want my final project to introduce my reader to the basics of creativity in copyright law, then make suggestions for education and reformation.
