LESSON: A Creator's Rights (est. Time 45 min.)
Essential Question: What rights do you have as a creator?
Students are introduced to copyright, fair use, and the rights they have as creators.
Students view the introductory video and explore the Key Vocabulary terms using the student handout. Students then explore the copyright history of the “Happy Birthday” song and create an original happy birthday song of their own. For the Extension Activity, students examine copyright licensing in depth by looking at the Creative Commons licensing symbols in the intro video.
