If I have a website can I link to another person’s website? Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected?

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer Everything on the Internet is owned by someone! The images, the text, the layouts, the designs and even the databases that drive some of the sites! You must assume that everything is protected and to use it you should get written permission from the owner. The fact you are a student and only want to use the material for your project work is no defence, even copying text for an essay is illegal if you don’t get permission whether you reference it or not! As an artist its difficult because inspiration can come from many places, what you must make sure of is that you do not use other people’s ideas and pass them of as your own! A Q The Internet

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer Good practice says that you should get permission, but if you do not then you should be careful to link to the home page and not in anyway pass of their site or any of its contents as yours. Many owners are happy for you to link to them but just in case make sure you get their permission in writing – it can save confusion later on. A Q The Internet

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer We know that we have said it before but it is so important that we will repeat it: The fact you are a student and only want to use the material for your project work is no defence, even copying text for an essay is illegal if you don’t get permission whether you reference it or not! And of course the same Laws protect your work from copying. You don’t need to do anything special to have your work copyrighted, the face that you have created it is sufficient for it to be protected. But beware when you start work, your employer will insist that everything you do at work belongs to him/her, some even go so far as saying that all ideas you have, inside or outside of work belongs to them. Read your contract of employment!! A Q The Internet

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer All material placed on the web is protected by copyright. But a website is made up of many different components: Design, Images, and the “structure”, this is very hard claim ownership because each page has underlying code which defines how it looks and works. Its very easy for anyone to access this code, copy it (that’s illegal!...) and change it. What is almost impossible is to prove that someone it this unless you have a very unusual way of doing the original coding! But remember, how it looks and its content are protected and no one may download this without your express permission. See, it works both ways!! A Q The Internet

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer Digital images have the same status as traditional photographs and are automatically protected by copyright. If you are taking pictures of works of art – paintings, sculptures etc, you must make clear what their copyright status is. In addition if you are commissioned (paid) to take a photograph, in general you still own the copyright of the picture despite having been paid for it and usually only “sell” its use for a specific task. Many clients don’t think this is fair and will argue about it, make sure you get the terms and conditions in writing to save any problems later on. A Q The Internet

Can I copy text from someone’s web page? Is a website I design protected? Are digital photographs protected? This is a minefield, what do you suggest? Where can I find more information? Click on any question below for the answer You’re right, it is a minefield and a very specialist minefield at that! You should always seek written permission to use any material that you did not originate yourself. In addition, if you create any work yourself it has copyright automatically assigned to it, you need do nothing. But beware, if in any doubt seek professional advice. A Q The Internet

If I work for someone who owns the work I create? What is the difference between copyright and intellectual property rights? Does digital material have any special status? Click on any question below for the answer Many of us look at other work to inspire us, its all part of the creative process and many artists would say they created their work for other people to look at (interact with, read, listen to or watch) and be inspired! What we have to careful with is that we do not use their work and pass it off as our own. For instance if you used part of a photograph, taken by someone else, modified it and passed it off as yours without any reference to the original artist, this would be illegal. Continue to look at what others have done, be inspired, but this is a very difficult area to advise on and its best to talk it through with your tutor. One question for you: How would you feel if someone used your work? A Q Creative work

If I work for someone who owns the work I create? What is the difference between copyright and intellectual property rights? Does digital material have any special status? Click on any question below for the answer Fair Dealing applies to you acting on your own behalf in “using” other people’s work. You could sue it in the following situations: Research or Private study Criticism or Review – you might quote a passage from a book if you were doing a review on that book Reporting current events – the event would need to be topical JICS have drawn up a good Code of Practice for this area – and the Electronic Environment, its worth reading, click here: A Q Creative work

If I work for someone, who owns the work I create? What is the difference between copyright and intellectual property rights? Does digital material have any special status? Click on any question below for the answer That depends on your contract of employment. You may find that all you do belongs to them – even writing a novel in your lunchtime! So, the message here is read the small print or you could find that a brilliant idea about nothing to do with work which you had on your way home from work is owned by your boss! A Q Creative work

If I work for someone who owns the work I create? What is the difference between copyright and intellectual property rights? Does digital material have any special status? Click on any question below for the answer Intellectual property rights (IPR) include copyright, but they also cover a whole lot more: trademarks, patents or performance and recording rights. If you think of copyright as a part of IPR that is correct but you’ll find many people confused and use copyright when they are referring to IPR. It makes no difference to the outcome, your copyright is covered as part of your intellectual property rights. A Q Creative work

If I work for someone who owns the work I create? What is the difference between copyright and intellectual property rights? Does digital material have any special status? Click on any question below for the answer Digital material is protected in the same way as traditional material except that they are classified as literary works (even digital photographs, layouts and multi-media presentations) because they are made from binary code. But for instance you could scan a painting that was out of copyright, but if you did it from a modern day book you would be infringing copyright as the design of the book would be protected. But your digital work would be protected in the same as if you had painted it in oils, provided that it is original and is in material form – ideas cannot be copyrighted but if you put them into a physical form this can be protected.

Click on any question below for the answer "To steal or pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own" (Webster's dictionary) The range of plagiarism ranges from the wholesale copying of an essay to cutting and pasting of sections and their rearrangement interspersed with original comment.
