Create memes that support copyright reform! You’ll learn how to use pictures from the public domain to gain a better understanding of the implications of outdated copyright law.
  1. Task 1 Make a meme!

    Copyright sounds like a single thing but it's actually more like a bundle of sticks. If you own the "copyright" in a work of art, that means that you can prevent others from:

    • Making reproductions of the work
    • Distributing the work
    • Making derivatives of the work
    • Displaying the work
    • Performing the work

    Copyright law varies from country to country, but these 5 things are generally the same.
