Week 6 Post

Copyright law is protection of original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium including literacy, dramatic, musical, artistic and other intellectual works.  I believe that the copyright law is needed because It wouldn’t be fair to the author of something to no get credit for someone putting their work into a research paper or essay of some sort.  It’s almost like telling someone a really funny joke and then that person uses it and impresses other people with your joke.  It just isn’t fair.  I think that the copyright law should be issued onto anything for as long as possible because it’s that author or producers work and they should be recognized for it.  It’s pretty much considered plagiarism for someone to use someone else work.  I believe that remixing is the same thing as plagiarism because they are using intellectual words that are coming from someone else and basically mixed around to sound different.  You still need to give the author credit for it.

Week 5 Post

This week, I learned about a new website called Symbaloo and so far, I’ve been using it all the time.  I can access all of my social media devices and add ones to my list.  If I need help finding a website or checking out other peoples blogs then I can do so with Symbaloo.  I went looking around for websites that would interest me the most and I couldn’t really find any that revolved around my major or any that could help me with my career. There were a ton of flaws in the sites because they didn’t give me what I wanted.  I’ll keep looking for more.

Week 4 Post

I have learned about a website called Bitly and have come to a conclusion that this website could be very helpful.  You use it to save web URLs so that if you need to look it up again or forgot what it was, you could bookmark the URL and go to Bitly to find it easily.  This could be helpful when trying to show someone your blog or a video that you have posted or anything that could help you in the future.  I plan on using this website for my blogs.
