    Thought-provoking for sure.

    Copyright is always a big issue in academia with the growing problem of plagiarism. You raise a very good discussion, which I’d love to pass on to may colleagues.

    My creative (and dominant) side sees great potential in open source content and fair use of media to enhance teaching, learning, and more.

    I’m off to ponder this some more.

    Great site here, by the way. I subscribed.
