Abstract

“This chapter explores some of the different moral and ethical considerations people bring to issues of copyright, other intellectual property, authorship, ownership, citation, and attribution - and uses that exploration to suggest strategies for sharing information about copyright law that recognize the various interests of different creator and user communities.”

Main Results of the Study

Overall, students’ knowledge of copyright is lacking, as confirmed in self-assessments pre- informational session. However, the study also suggests that similar findings are evident amongst university faculty and professionals.

Students regularly think about copying, sharing, permissions and accreditation, which the study suggests is due to immersion in e.g. social media and streaming services. Because of this, students are more willing to engage with the realities and assessment of everyday infringement than older participants. Younger students also demonstrate the ability to assess questionable content (e.g. on YouTube) more quickly and efficiently than older generations.

The study concludes that students are not necessarily ignorant or disrespectful of copyright; they are aware, but their own community mores and ethics diverge from legal norms.

Policy Implications as Stated By Author

The study does not offer any explicit policy recommendations.
