    Hey, great presentation, and such an important topic for educators all over the world to understand. Respect for copyright (and its more viable alternatives such as Creative Commons) is such an important thing to keep pushing.
    Your explanations and examples are terrific, easy to understand, and so relevant. Wonderful work!
    Thanks for sharing!
