The #HonorCopyright Awareness Campaign: Sept. 30 – Oct. 4, 2013


In cooperation with: Apologia | CurrClick | Five in a Row | Free Homeschool Deals | Happy Housewife | Heart of the Matter | Home Educating Family | Homeschool Blogging | Homeschool Chicks | Homeschool Giveaways | Homeschool Share | Inspired Bloggers Network | Joy Comes in the Morning | Prodigal Planet | Simple Homeschool | So You Call Yourself a Homeschooler  | The iHomeschool Network Bloggers

Join us in this week long public discussion  about the dos and don’ts of copyright, fair use, piracy, and plagiarism.

Unfortunately, copyright infringement is a frequent occurrence among the homeschool  community. There are groups on Facebook, Yahoo, and other social media platforms which improperly distribute free files or illegally share paid files. In many cases, the infringement is an issue of ignorance on the part of well-meaning and caring homeschoolers. Many people do not fully understand copyright law and aren’t knowledgeable enough to speak out against it when they see abuse.

Additionally, there is a large amount of misinformation which confuses homeschool parents. During the #honorcopyright week, we will be digging into to the dos and don’ts of copyright law to learn together. This week is not about policing or shaming; it’s about learning. Together, we can learn to understand and honor copyright law.
