Copyright and Attribution

Copy right is when you don’t have the right to copy off someone, for example when you are using someone’s picture and dont give them credits, it doesn’t only count with pictures it goes the same with games, songs, videos and more, but Attribution is when you give credits to the author for the piece they made therefore you have the right to use it and when people take a look at your work they will see who and where you got that piece of work from.

I like this task as I can share and tell more people about copyright so they dont make any mistakes in the future.
