Copyright Office Launches Website for Kids

In this digital age, many don’t understand that they are breaking the law when making unauthorized copies of photos. Education is one of the best ways to protect photographer’s rights.

To help with this, the Copyright Office has launched an interactive website aimed at middle-school children. The goal of “Taking the Mystery Out of Copyright” is to explain U.S. copyright law. The colorful and animated website includes a set of learning activities and employs a character named Detective Cop E. Wright (no relation, but I love the similarity to my name!), together with other original characters, to help bring a greater understanding of how U.S. copyright law operates. To view the new website, go to and select “Taking the Mystery Out of Copyright.”

A few adults could learn from this website, as well.

Take my advice; get professional help.
