This lesson for grades 11-12 asks: What should you consider when you use other people’s creative work to create your own? Students reflect on the differences between taking inspiration from the creative work of others and appropriating that work without permission. Students review their knowledge of copyright and fair use, and examine a case study involving the appropriation of music by a popular band. Students then form groups in which they role-play different stakeholders in the music industry, and then debate the ethical and legal issues involved in using other people’s creative work in practices such as remixes and sampling. Co-developed by Common Sense Media and the GoodPlay Project at Harvard University's Graduate School of Education, this lesson is one of 70 available in the full K-12 Digital Literacy and Citizenship curriculum from Common Sense Media.
