Is your material copyrighted and may I use it?
Answer: Yes, our material is copyrighted. Nearly all the original material on the web is copyrighted thanks to laws that immediately copyright original work loaded to the web. That's why loading a webpage is called "published". If you copy other people's work and post it on your own or another site, that work is still copyrighted. You could be in a lot of trouble copying other peoples work in the wrong way even if you're a kid. For more information on copyrights, see this site: Copyright & Fair Use Laws. Our material is additionally copyrighted with the U.S. Copyright Office, part of the Library of Congress,.
We do have additional books and stories for sale through our publisher, but the above stories, myths, and legends have been posted online for use by kids and teachers in your classrooms at no charge with some restrictions. RESTRICTIONS: Direct links to our site are always appreciated. However, you may not make a copy of our material, put your name on it, and turn it in as your work. You may not copy our material and post it on your web page or anyone else's web page. You may not mirror our site. You may not frame our site. You may not pass our site through your proxy server in order to block ads. You may not distribute and/or sell our work without our written permission. To do any of these things is copyright infringement, which is a crime.
Note to Our Students: It's okay to copy little pieces of someone else's work as long as you do it in the right way. There are rules (laws, really) on how to do it. For more information, see this great site that clearly explains copyrights and fair use (and what you can and cannot do.) Copyright Kids
Besides all the educational materials and original stories we have posted freely online for teachers and kids to use, we also have books and educational materials available for purchase through our publisher. Our publisher adds new material all the time to their catalogue and things do get rearranged. We try to keep an eye on it, but if the links below need updating, just search their site for Lin and Don Donn. Thank you.

Feel free to rearrange or add a slide or take one or more out. That's the neat thing about PowerPoints.
