What is Copyright?
The definition given on Google: ‘The exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material’.
Copyright gives the creators of some types of media rights to control how they’re used and distributed. Music, books, video and software’s can be covered by copyright law.
How does Copyright apply to me?
For our main task we needed to include either our own music or copyright free/royalty free music. In this case we had to ensure when we we’re finding music on YouTube that we were able to legally use it.
Same applied for our typography of the title and credits. We had to ensure that this was also copyright free. As a group we found a site called DAFONT.com in which gave lists of copyright free texts which we will choose and pick one for our main task.
