There are many myths about copyrights, but you only need to remember one thing.
- [Presenter] When bank tellers are trained,…part of their education is to detect counterfeit bills…that come through the system.…They don't spend their time learning how to do this…by studying the fakes,…instead they spend their time studying real currency,…so when a counterfeit does show up,…they immediately recognize it as such.…The same principle can be applied to many things in life,…and when it comes to copyright,…I'm not going to waste your time…covering all the various copyright myths.…
You've heard them,…like mailing yourself for certified letter of your work…and not opening it, doesn't prove squat,…or changing a design 20% means it's safe to use,…and all the other myths people have propagated…over the years regarding copyright protection.…You only need to remember one thing,…if you created it, you own the copyright,…as soon as the pen is off the paper.…That's it, period, the end.…
So be informed and let the myths die.…
