What is it?

Intellectual property is any product of a person's mind. If it comes from their imagination, then it is intellectual property. IP rights may be protected at law in the same way as any other form of property. Key topics in this area include:
  • Plagiarism
  • Copyright law
  • File Sharing
  • Legal consequences involved in file sharing
  • Risks involved with file sharing


Our Goals

Students understand the law and risks involved in plagiarism, file sharing, and illegal downloading. We also want parents to be aware of how certain technologies, such as peer-to-peer file sharing programs, work so that they can prevent dangerous situations.
Students must be aware that they stick to certain guidelines when referencing other people's work.
