This past week in journalism, we have been learning about copyright law and how many people have no idea about what it is. I sadly learned that I, was one of those people.
I learned that most of my life, I had been stealing images off of google like everyone else. Now I know to use some of the websites to help me find legal images.
The reason I picked a picture a pig is because I have always loved pigs. I grew up watching Winnie the Pooh. I rapidly grew fond of Piglet, along with Kanga and Roo.
Every time I see a baby pig, I get so excited! They just seem like they are fun to play with. Also, piglets seem like they would be soft. I believe I have touched and seen one in real life once or twice. I’d love to go see another or maybe even have my own!
Because I love pigs so much, I found a picture of a piglet on Photo Pin. I was trying to find a picture of Piglet off of Winnie the Pooh, but I figured that most of them would be copyrighted by Disney or their affiliates.
