Copyright and digital literacy: rules, risk and creativity

Morrison, Chris (2018) Copyright and digital literacy: rules, risk and creativity. In: Reedy, Katharine and Parker, Jo, eds. Digital Literacy Unpacked. Facet, London, pp. 97-108. ISBN 978-1-78330-197-3. (KAR id:70446)


Copyright is now an inescapable aspect of learning and research when using digital technologies, and therefore awareness of it is a fundamental part of digital literacy. Rather than being a separate concept that can be considered in isolation, copyright implications arise whenever anyone creates, interacts with or shares content with others. It is therefore woven through all the key aspects of digital literacies and capabilities, with particular relevance for the ethics of sharing. This chapter from the book Digital Literacy Unpacked (Reedy & Parker, Facet 2018) identifies the relationships between copyright and digital literacy, discussing ideas of rules and risk in institutional and non-institutional contexts. In additional it summarises the author's approach to copyright education using games and other creative approaches.
