After seeing a lot of YouTubers or Instagrammers getting their content removed due to copyright infringement, I got really scared because I don’t have a lot of knowledge referring to copyright laws. What is correct to take from others and what is not?
When Jon Festinger came into the lecture and started to explain how copyright worked, I had a lot of questions about this topic, how to protect myself when I take others’ content or how to protect my work when it is being used without citing me. Since then I started carefully using other people’s content to maximize mine, but I am always careful about citing or referring to the page that I got the information from. I still try to create most of my content or inspire my content from others without copying their work.
I use others’ work to illustrate some of my posts or I use them as evidence.
