Copyright stuff…(October Nights)

Some very basic stuff…

1. The case of the “hope” picture.

Shepard Fairy doctored this photo…


into this…


2. The solution…just don’t rip something off/change it without permission.

You can use pretty much whatever you want, as long as you credit the original source.

Even if it’s tiny…it’s there on almost every site. Look in the lower right hand corner…

3. You CAN use youtube others vids…if it’s obvious that you’re adding to them, not just reposting them to get more views.

Lots of people just re-post to their own page (they rip the vid from youtube).

These people suck.


1. Don’t do that (rip off someone else to boost views).

2. Be sure to get the ORIGINAL to embed, or your vid could wind up being taken down. Check out how many repostes there are of this vid…

…in addition to the other writing you’ve been doing (personal, etc.) let’s do one story that compiles multiple sources.


–pick a topic/current event.

–write at least FOUR paragraphs, with at least FIVE links and/or videos (embedded or linked).

–don’t freak out…paragraphs online can be 2-3 sentences.


Golf can kill you. Or something.
