Common Copyright Myths

With the Internet, many folks think that copyright laws no longer exist. However, you still need to remember a few things:

  • A work doesn't have to carry a copyright mark to be copyrighted.


  • Movement from document to digital (scanning a page in a book, for example) does not "cancel" a copyright.


  • The source where you obtained the work is immaterial. Taking an image from a newsgroup or Web site doesn't make it legal.


  • No such thing as a "blanket" copyright exists. Permissions must be individually obtained for each work, each time you want to use the work.


  • Changing an original doesn't change the copyright. You may tweak the Mona Lisa in Photoshop, but the copyright still doesn't belong to you.
