Activity B: Creating a diagram

For this activity we want you to create a diagram to represent some element of your research structure. This could be your whole project, just your literature review, a particular chapter, how your conceptual framework impacts your research - anything that will be useful for you. We will use this week's webinar as an opportunity to share these with each other.

Part B: Images & copyright

Navigate the tabs below to access the activities and videos for this section:

Activity C - read this: What is a creator?

We know that the creator of a work is the original owner of the copyright – but how do we define ‘creator’?   What’s the right thing to do when you don’t know who the creator is?

Guadamuz, A (2018)  “Can the monkey selfie case teach us anything about copyright law?

(And if you want to know the outcome of PETA’s appeal on behalf of the monkey)
