Intellectual Property Summary
The article is titled, “Do Students Respect Intellectual Property?” This question can not be easily answered. Students obviously do not intend to disrespect intellectual property, and neither do their teachers. However, with so much confusion in relation to the laws both students and teachers are guilty of making mistakes when it comes to using someone else’s intellectual property. What then results is a vicious cycle of ignorance. Even if the teacher inadvertently violates someone’s intellectual property rights the students entrusted to them will likely only follow suit. It is the teacher’s responsibility to provide all due respect to intellectual property.
