Welcome Back guys 🙂

This weeks lecture was about Copyright. Which i was excited about, when i found out because i always found copyrighting confusing and interesting.

Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country, that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights to its use and distribution, usually for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the creator (e.g. the photographer of a photograph or the author of a book) to receive compensation for their intellectual effort. ( Wikipedia )

Copyright gives the person who created a work the credit for it.

Properly cite all images, quotes and
references in your blog posts.
