copyright. Goldieblox VS the beastly boys VS YouTube

there are many type’s of copyright and they are all very important

This add by goldiebloxs had to have its soundtrack completely reworked because the original used a beastly boys song that they didn’t have a licence for

but this guy has over twenty songs in a mash-up on YouTube and hasn’t received a single threat. Why

it all seems to revolve around the fact that the bottom guy said in the description of his video that he didn’t own any of the music in his video

so even though it was implied that goldieblox did not own the beastly boys song they got sued for copyright and lost and the person who made the mash-up of video didn’t and the only difference was that the guy on YouTube had the sense to give credit and and the people at the big corporate companies didn’t

so here’s what the message is: give credit and you won’t get sued (you may still get sued but I did warn you didn’t I. it is someone else’s property is it not)

1 to 17

Here is another trick that I learned at the Hub

You take the numbers 1 to 17 and try to arrange them in an order so that if you add any two side by side numbers they will add up to a perfect square

Only one person in the class could figure it out and he`s the Math wizard of the class and only took him a few minutes but in a class of thirty on so people, one got it

So that kinda proves its fairly hard

Try it yourself and post your time in the comments

(for those of you who don`t know, a perfect square is the product of a number multiplied by itself)

Cyber bullying questions

Are we model NETizens


Who do you want to be online?

I want to be able to be myself.  It’s hard with all the rules about not giving away personal information


What is a digital footprint and how can you control yours

A digital footprint is like a real footprint on the moon. It’s what you leave in your wake when you blog or post videos and it’s eternal. The elements will not ravage it as they would a real footprint and if you look hard enough you can see them forever


What recent embarrassing story of a celebrity has developed?

There is the story about Rob Ford doing cocaine while in office as mayor of Toronto. One picture of him which was found online has ruined him. He has been stripped of most of his power and the only reason he is still mayor is political stuff


What are some strategies that you use to stay safe online.

I avoid giving away personal information to even my most trusted friends. Who knows where it will end up


Which categories of people are more vulnerable online that others and why.

Young kids are very vulnerable because they don’t know the do’s and don’ts of the internet. They may accidentally give away personal information that could put themselves or others in danger.


Are offline and online risks any different and why

I think there isn’t a huge difference between them. We have “stranger danger” and things like that. we also have many other rules that are very similar to real life. Don`t share personal information, You wouldn`t just paint on the front of you house `your name here` lives here.
