Do not be too restrictive when defining your copyright limitations for your post.
1. Pros and cons of copyright.
What is copyright?
Protects the IP rights of the original creator of the material.
Books, songs, movies, software code, somes just concepts or ideas.
inventions
sculptures, paintings…
research data…
reports…
Lawyers are sometimes needed to define what IP is.
Unique, product of creativity
IP doesn’t need to be tangible necessarily.
Trademarks are “copyrights” for logos or company names or product names.
A royalty is a payment made to the original creator for use or sale of his IP.

Different countries have different copyright laws.

There is a “loophole” for educators. It is called the “Fair Use Doctrine”.

You buy a one-year “license” to use it for that time.
When the “license” expires, you must renew your license for another year.
Eventually, Windows will be licensed this way and you will pay for it every year.
Windows 365 is licensed only. Every year you must pay for its continued use.
Because it’s online only, they “have you by the short hairs” and you have to keep paying.
