    copyright allows creative workers to profit from their labors and encourages creativity in American society as a whole

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Copyright is a legal protection that grants exclusive rights to creators of original works, such as authors, artists, musicians, and filmmakers. By allowing these creative workers to profit from their labors, copyright incentivizes them to continue creating and contributing to American society's cultural and economic development. This protection fosters a climate of creativity and innovation, as it ensures that creators can benefit financially from their creations, which in turn encourages them to produce more original works. Therefore, the statement is true.

    If you provide copies of computer software, songs, movies, or other copyrighted works to others through a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing network you are violating anti-piracy laws.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Providing copies of copyrighted works through a peer-to-peer file sharing network is indeed a violation of anti-piracy laws. Peer-to-peer file sharing allows users to directly share files with each other without the need for a central server. When copyrighted works such as computer software, songs, movies, or other content are shared without proper authorization or licenses, it infringes on the rights of the copyright holder. This unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material is considered piracy and is illegal. Therefore, the statement "True" is the correct answer.

    Fair Use is a legal doctrine that allows limited use of copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder. It provides exceptions for certain purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research. In an educational setting, students are allowed to cite ideas and quotations from copyrighted works under Fair Use as long as it is for educational purposes.

    Explanation
    Works that are in the public domain are not protected by copyright law, which means that anyone can freely use them without permission or restrictions. This includes works whose copyright has expired, works that were never eligible for copyright protection, or works where the creator has intentionally placed them in the public domain. Therefore, the statement "Anyone can freely use works that are in the public domain" is true.

    Plagiarizing is no different from stealing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Plagiarizing is the act of using someone else's work or ideas without giving them proper credit. Similarly, stealing involves taking someone else's property without permission. Both actions involve taking something that does not belong to you. Therefore, it can be said that plagiarizing is no different from stealing, as they both involve dishonesty and taking something that is not rightfully yours.
