  Copyright Copyright for Web International laws surrounding copyright dictate that any included materials that have been copied or derived from the srcinal source, must have been authorised by the copyright holder of the content. If copyrighted materials are used without permission you become liable to prosecution under the ‘Copyright Act of 1976’.

These elements are strictly regulated. General Considerations There are many laws surrounding websites, detailing what can be included. Some are quite specific however most are vague. These faint guidelines create big grey areas which can be exploited to argue against certain procedures. For example, the laws state that anyone who is included in a video must approve of their likeness being captured, however when filming large crowds, you can argue there is no way to get all their permissions. There are a great many exceptions that exist under the Copyright Designs and Patents Act of 1988. Exceptions for use of copyrighted material In the Copyright Designs and Patents Act of 1988 it is stated in the third chapter that under specific circumstances the use of copyrighted material is acceptable. Some of these exceptions are stated below.    Temporary copies  –   If I was to utilise an image which was only intended to be a temporary copy, which is deemed necessary to the production of the work.    Reporting on events  –   In some cases it is acceptable to include copyrighted content when including updated important news.    Incidental inclusion  –   If copyrighted material is included accidentally then even though you can be taken to court still, you most likely will not be prosecuted. Defamation Under the communication and decency act 1996, any featured content on a website cannot defame or insult anyone. The act prevents any form of libel. Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (1988): By law any work completed by an individual is their own intellectual property, and all rights to the work belong to them.

Legal Considerations In all the media environments, there are specific rules that need to be adhered to. Additionally, there are ethical and moral issues to consider. The Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (1988) is where they explain the surrounding laws. There are legal limits that websites must comply with. Unlike alternate media outlets like newspaper or radio, the governing laws of TV and Web can be regulated closely.
