Additional Resources for Intellectual Property Lesson

I added these three things to our discussion about intellectual property for the warm up and it ended up being a discussion that took the whole hour! It is an important discussion that kids today REALLY need to have!

I also showed the trailer from the movie “Yesterday” - is it intellectual property if no one knows?

@kseip Good information! Thanks for sharing. I found one a year or so ago about Taylor Swift giving credit to Right Said Fred for a riff she borrowed from his song. I like showing the examples of people following the rules as well as some of the ones who don’t.

Great find!
