    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    It is okay to rework someone's copyrighted material and use it in a different way.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Reworking someone's copyrighted material and using it in a different way is not permissible under copyright law. Copyright grants exclusive rights to the original creator, including the right to control how their work is used, reproduced, or distributed. Without obtaining permission or a license from the copyright holder, it is generally not legal to use or modify their work in any way. Therefore, the statement that it is okay to rework copyrighted material and use it differently is false.

    It is okay to use someone's copyrighted work for profit.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using someone's copyrighted work for profit without obtaining the necessary permissions or licenses is a violation of copyright law. Copyright law grants exclusive rights to the creator of a work, including the right to reproduce, distribute, and profit from their work. Using someone's work without their permission can lead to legal consequences, such as being sued for copyright infringement and having to pay damages. Therefore, it is not okay to use someone's copyrighted work for profit without proper authorization.

    It is okay to use someone's copyrighted work to add new meaning and make it original.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is incorrect. It is not okay to use someone's copyrighted work without permission, even if the intention is to add new meaning and make it original. Copyright laws protect the originality and ownership of creative works, and using someone's work without permission can lead to legal consequences. It is important to respect and acknowledge the rights of the original creator.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    It is okay to use someone's copyrighted material as long as you use a large amount.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using someone's copyrighted material without permission is generally not okay, regardless of the amount used. The use of copyrighted material without permission is a violation of the owner's exclusive rights, which include the rights to reproduce, distribute, and display their work. Even using a small amount of copyrighted material without permission can still be considered infringement. Therefore, the statement is false.
