Copyright is an important topic, and becomes even more so the deeper we get into technology. People are creating their own works, sometimes daily. These creations often end up on "the web" for everyone to see. People can easily maneuver a work from one place to another, and from one format to another, without gaining permission or giving credit to the original creator. The more we as creators and users of information can keep current on copyright laws, the more knowledge we can share with others so we all can "do the right thing."
