DO NOT IGNORE (but more importantly BREAK) MEDIA LAWS, especially copyright.
The discussion in this lecture was helpful in reminding me that copyright laws don’t just disappear because we are on the Internet. If anything, it is easier to trace posts and ideas back to their original source BECAUSE we are on the Internet.
Indeed, our own disclaimer reads, “All material here is attributable to its specific author/s and is not authorized, and in no way necessarily reflect the views of the University, teaching staff, or the program.
Material is expected to comply with appropriate legal and ethical standards of practice for online media, and Australian law.”
In other words, there’s a little more to having a blog than just posting photos and ramblings. Responsibility is key.
