Hidden Images - Tigers Greeting Card by Steve Read



How may tigers can you see?
On first glance it looks like four, but then you realise there is more?
In the trees, in the rocks
let you imagination pop.

What Would You Have Written?
Write in the comments
and tell me how many tigers you see

My point of view on the Fair(y) Used Tale

I was really cool that they put a video together with just some scenes from Disney and it was even better that it was about copyright.

It was interesting because it was of course telling you about the legal and non legal concepts of copyright. I didn't realise copyright lasted for the authors lifetime plus 70 years, but originally starting at 14 years. On further research, it was even more interesting that the film was made from Disney characters when it is believed that in America, the copyright law was changed, every time Disney was worried about Mickey Mouse loosing the copyright. see http://artlawjournal.com/mickey-mouse-keeps-changing-copyright-law/

The only negative was, it was hard to understand in parts, it seemed to jump around a bit, which made it hard to follow. It would have been great if a quick summary was given at the end, in text or a voice over. Or as another alternative, text at the bottom during the whole film.

copyright work

After watching the video, I got a better understanding of the rules around sharing work. Firstly, if I do use someone elses work, I need to attribute it to them, in my words, inform who produced the piece of work (literature, art etc).

I looked more into a derivative, it is work is that includes major copyright-protected elements of an original. An example I found is the Mona Lisa with a moustache.

Share-alike is a copyright licensing term, to describe works or licences that require copies or adaptations of the work to be released under the same or similar licence as the original.


 I can see from the video, the childrens disappointment at having their work labelled incorectly, and that is just in their classroom. If you compare that to the world wide web which has over 3 billion users in 2015. You really start to understand the importance of attribution, share alike, licences and derivatives.

3 Tourists Attractions (New Zealand)

If I where you and came to New Zealand, the 3 places I would visit are,

Rotorua



Rotorua is a major destination for both domestic and international tourists; the tourism industry is by far the largest industry in the district. It is known for its geothermal activity, and features geysers – notably the Pohutu Geyser at Whakarewarewa – and hot mud pools. This thermal activity is sourced to the Rotorua caldera, on which the town lies.

Waitomo Caves

Waitomo is a Maori word made up of two parts. 'Wai' which translates as water and'tomo' which means entrance or hole. Waitomo can be translated as the 'stream which flows into the hole in the ground'. This meaning is reflected through its fantastic geological history and landscape, however it also has a rich tourism and cultural history. As a region it is one of New Zealand's original tourist destinations.


The Waitomo District, encompassing the ​main town and service centre of Te Kuiti and the townships of Waitomo, Mokau, PioPio, Awakino, Marokapa and Benneydale amongst others, is home to around 9,700 people. The prosperous local economy is built around tourism, farming, mining and forestry.


The glow worm, Arachnocampa luminosa, is unique to New Zealand. Thousands of these tiny creatures radiate their unmistakable luminescent light as our expert guides provide informative commentary on the Caves' historical and geological significance.


Waitomo Glowworm Caves are a must see for any traveller. Enjoy the world famous boat ride under thousands of magical glowworms and become a part of over 120 years of cultural and natural history.


Queenstown


Queenstown’s stunning scenery, huge range of activities and renowned warm welcome cement its reputation as New Zealand’s favourite visitor destination. Surrounded by majestic mountains and set on the shores of crystal clear Lake Wakatipu, the natural beauty and the unique
energy of the region create the perfect backdrop for a holiday full of adventure, exploration or relaxation.
