ACO 6.0 - Proprietary Information

The FCC, also known as the Federal Communications Commission, is an agency created by the United States government to try to regulate communication through cable, wire, radio, and television. They regulate all interstate communications. Copyright infringement is using creations protected by copyright without permission. There are consequences to doing this, if you make any profit from anything connected to the copyrighted item that you used, you will have to give it all up. There is also a fine that you will have to pay ranging from $200 to $150,000, you also pay all attorney fees and court costs. If you do not want to be hurt by these consequences, here are some few steps to know if you can use copyrighted materials. 
  • Make sure you need permission
  • Identify the owner
  • Identify the rights needed
  • Plan for permission
  • Message owner to know what is needed to use his material
  • Get a permission signature from him in writing
Fair use is something that lets you use copyrighted material without getting in any trouble, but there is some restrictions. You can only use copyrighted material for free without consequences if you are using it within these categories; criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

You should always keep your private information private, if you leak it or give it out, people can do a lot of things with it. First of all, never give your address, you never know who's out there, and it's not calming to know that people online know where you live. Another thing is your social security number, they can know tons of stuff about you like your name and addresses. Finally, your full name, if someone knows your name, they can search you up and know your social media and maybe a few more things, it's safer to put your first name only because you're probably not the only one with that name. Social media is supposed to be platforms to let you show how you are living your life, it lets you share how you did your day, if people can see that they can see where you've been, if you have a public account anyone can see it. 

I think that censorship is fine right now, but it violates the 1st amendment, we have freedom of speech. Censorship bypasses it, if you use speech to induce harm on to someone you are committing a fraud. Censorship protects people because of the 5th amendment: people's right to privacy, if you ask to be censored you cannot be shown in whatever you were in.

ACO 6.1: Analyze the use of copyright and proprietary information in arts and communication to facilitate responsible, legal and ethical behavior.
ACO 6.2: Examine ethical issues in arts and communications to make appropriate decisions related to clients, co-workers and society.
