Copyright Myths Debunked

Craft Industry Alliance debunked five common copyright myths in this January 2016 post.

•   Myth number 1: Copyright protects anything and everything I create.

•   Myth Number 2: Copyright only protects your work if you’ve included a copyright notice or registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office.

•   Myth Number 3: If someone gives something away for free or posts it online, it’s not protected by copyright.

•   Myth Number 4: I only have to change 10 percent of someone else’s copyrighted item before it becomes mine.

•   Myth 5: If something is out of print, it’s OK to make copies of it.

Information about each one of these myths can be found on the Craft Industry Alliance website
