Copyright and your own work

It is equally important students consider how they wish to share their own work.

The law automatically grants you full “copyright” over any creative work you make, including the stories you write, the pictures you draw, the music you record, the photos you take, and the video you capture. This means that unless you say otherwise, nobody may share your work or make changes to it. (Creative Commons Sharing Creative works)

This means students need to decide if and how they might share their work, and if anyone can make changes to it. Which Licence is Right for Me? is a useful poster from Creative Commons which will help students understand how this works.

Which CC licence?

Publication of student work requires parent permission and student permission. See your own school/education jurisdiction for relevant guidelines.
