Copyright Quizzes & Trivia

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If a piece of work is public domain, it may be used for a project without permission, but should still be cited.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a piece of work is in the public domain, it means that the copyright protection has expired or the creator has voluntarily relinquished their rights. This allows anyone to use the work without seeking permission. However, even though permission is not required, it is still considered good practice to cite the source of the work to give proper credit to the original creator. Therefore, the statement that a work in the public domain may be used for a project without permission, but should still be cited, is true.

    The domain of a website comes at the beginning of the web address.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The domain of a website does not necessarily come at the beginning of the web address. The web address typically starts with a protocol (such as "http://" or "https://") followed by the domain name, which is usually located after the protocol and before any subdirectories or specific page addresses. Therefore, the statement that the domain comes at the beginning of the web address is false.

      Plagiarism

    • B.

      Domains

    • C.

      Copyright

    Correct Answer
    C. Copyright
    Explanation
    Copyright is the correct answer because it is the law that protects people from having their work being used without permission. Copyright grants the creator of a work exclusive rights to reproduce, distribute, and display their work. It ensures that others cannot use or copy someone's work without their permission, providing legal protection for original works of authorship such as books, music, art, and software.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using a website about NH current events that was last updated in 2011 for a research project would not be recommended. The information on the website would be outdated and may not reflect the current situation or events. It is important to use up-to-date and reliable sources for research projects to ensure accuracy and relevance of the information being used. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
