Learning About Copyrights

In this ever-changing, fast-paced information age, no student is too young to learn about fair use and copyright issues.

Everyone is a copyright user, to some extent, and everyone is a copyright owner, even children. The youngest students in kindergarten, up through the oldest in high school, can learn about what a copyright is, why it is important, and how to use copyrighted material correctly.

The Library of Congress has written all about copyright for kids here:

It includes information for kids of all ages, as well as links to more related information.

Here are a few additional sites with helpful information for children all about copyrights:
