Copyright and Creative Credit
Honoring the work of others, building from their inspiration, and blending the work of others with original ideas is part of being a good digital citizen. Learning to attribute credit to the author or source of images, words, music, or ideas that inspire, illustrate or are incorporated into our own work is an important responsibility as a digital citizen. There are works that are free to use, but more often licensing specifies limits of use, need for acknowledgement and identifying original source.
