Creative Commons images are available from many sources online. It is important to remind students that even providing a citation for a copyrighted image does not exempt them from asking permission from the owner.

So many students have developed the bad habit of freely copying and remixing images found via Google and other search engines without thought of copyright ownership. Making a book trailer is a great opportunity to teach good digital citizenship skills and make students aware of intellectual property issues, even at a young age.
