    If you access inappropriate material on your phone, tablet, or computer in class, it is best to follow the crash and close plan. This plan involves immediately closing the window or application that contains the inappropriate material and shutting down or restarting the device if necessary.

It is important to take quick action and handle the situation discreetly to avoid any disruptions or negative outcomes.

It grants exclusive rights to creators of original works, such as literature, music, art, and films, allowing them to control how their creations are used and distributed. This protection encourages creativity by providing creators with the assurance that their work will be recognized and rewarded. It also serves as a means to prevent unauthorized copying and distribution of copyrighted material, ensuring that creators have the ability to profit from their creations and maintain control over their intellectual property.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using copyrighted images, video clips, and lyrics in a class presentation is not necessarily a copyright violation. However, it is important to consider fair use guidelines and obtain proper permissions when using copyrighted materials. While it is generally recommended to use materials that are in the public domain or have a Creative Commons license, there are certain circumstances where the use of copyrighted materials may qualify as fair use, such as for educational purposes. Therefore, the statement is false as it does not encompass all possible scenarios.

    • A.

      Hold SHIFT while clicking and dragging the image from any side

    • B.
