Thanks to the internet, you can find virtually anything you need. Copyright law affords you some safe spaces to use others’ work without permission. However, simply accessing others’ work -- no matter a photo, article, blog post, or short video -- does not mean you can use them freely. In this class, you will learn how to use copyrighted materials without infringement and best practices in obtaining and using materials online.
