Copyright and Digital Ethics
The Internet brought about a total revolution in the world of information. Today, anyone with an Internet connection can access a wealth of information online. As our access to data increases, copyright laws struggle to keep up. This book examines how copyright law has been applied to online content, the emerging open source movement, fair use, proper citation practice, and the ethics of using and citing online information. It is an invaluable resource for today's students.
* Reviews *Collection Review: Digital and Information Literacy
"The books are well laid out with a clean design template, sidebars and relevant illustrations. The information on advanced searching, how search engines work, and types of websites will be new to many students...a great resource when introducing research projects, or to have available in the tech lab. RECOMMENDED."

Series Review: Digital and Information Literacy, Set 3
"This third set in the Digital and Information Literacy series goes beyond the basics to explore the newest digital media. Though each title is a broad overview of a sometimes-complex subject, the detail is significant--probably about as much as middle-school students will be willing to tackle. Touches of blue enhance the clean design, and each book includes a section called "Myths and Facts" as well as a list of 10 questions to ask an expert."
