CKNW Radio’s Jon McComb interviewed Lesley Ellen Harris on the copyright protection of online content from images to music to crafts. What’s protected and what’s not? When do you need permission? If you use unauthorized content, will you get sued?
Bottom line of this short radio interview:
- most online content is protected by copyright
- always assume that online content is protected unless you know otherwise
- if you use unauthorized content, don’t be surprised if you get an email from the content owner
