This is copyrighted, yeah?

Something I learnt from the readings this week that was quite interesting is that the duration of copyright is the lifetime of the creator plus 70 years. Whoa.

Also I had never heard of a Creative Commons where rather than an owner reserving all their rights, they relinquish some rights and reserves to others. There are different licenses they can choose from, such as an “attribution” license where others can use their work, as long as the original owner is credited as the author.

So we have to be very careful about what material we use in our blog as we must avoid copyright. Any work we produce on our blog is also copyrighted material, which I wasn’t aware of. I thought you had to go through some kind of process to get your stuff copyrighted.
