WHY WE CARE ABOUT COPYRIGHT

Thank you for visiting this resources page for the Macmillan Learning Media Literacy Activity on Copyright & Creativity entitled Ethical Online Media Behavior Tracking: Understanding Copyright. We hope to help you understand why a legal term like copyright is behind the creative work we all enjoy from artists around the world.  

Copyright safeguards the original works of writers, musicians, filmmakers, software and gaming developers, and other innovators whose collective contributions keep our country strong and competitive and our culture fascinating and diverse. In learning more about copyright, you’ve made the decision to help support these important protections.
