  30. Content and Copyrights Content development is important to understand, not only in terms of who will be developing the content for your project, but as to who owns the stuff. I am not an attorney, and I am not offering any legal advice. I suggest that if you have specific questions about copyright law, you seek the advise of a copyright attorney. That said, there is a common misconception that just because you are a student, working on a class project, you have the right to violate copyright law. Let me assure you, this is not the case. If you use copy written material for this class, you must receive permission to use it. Scott Nelson, Instructor SANelson@Pipeline.SBCC.Edu
