Due sunday 2/23 at 8:30pm permissions

**************************PLEASE READ THE instructions ********************


When creating content incorporating other peoples’ work, it is crucial to ensure that you have all the rights necessary to use the content for the purposes you desire. Getting permission is the obvious way to secure your position, but is it always necessary? There are defenses that can make permissions superfluous, but will distributors and employers accept that risk? Will you? This activity involves reading a comic book that chronicles the adventures of a documentary filmmaker trying to navigate the complicated tangle of copyright laws in order to make a movie about New York City. This assignment will open your eyes to the possibilities.
