I had a teacher share an interesting question from a student yesterday. He asked 
her if the copyright date on a book is no longer valid, what can he do with the 
book. Can he plagiarize it? He is 8 years old. I would like to clarify for them. 
How would you explain this to them? Is there a kid friendly website on copyright 
and fair use or on plagiarism that addresses this in a simple way? 
Thank you,
