The Idea... Bepop!

My husband called his grandfather Bepop! I am not exactly sure why. Anyway, my Honeybun often tells me of the many words of wisdom that Bepop had. One was "Give credit where credit is due."

Because of poverty in the Philippines, copyright laws are often overlooked with the tongue in cheek phrase, "we copied it right!"

However, the internet has helped more and more people realize that copying information can actually be beneficial, even for the originator of the work! Many more people are very willing to allow their work to be copied, with one condition...


COPY-IT-RIGHT is dedicated to people who would like to prosper and succeed with the give credit where credit is do form of copying. If you came here following a
COPY-IT-RIGHT link, please remember to give credit where credit is due!

Hello, I am a Filipina and where I live in the Philippines when someone hands you a copy of something, if you ask if they complied with the copyright laws, they will often smile and say, "COPY-IT-RIGHT!"

The truth is there is a new copy-it-right and we should understand what copy-it-right should and does mean in relation to other copyrights.


<p style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><em>
<a href="">COPY-IT-RIGHT © 2009 </a>
<a href=""></a>


The above Code (that is in the box) generates the COPY-IT-RIGHT notice that is below the box. Just copy that code into a text editor like Notepad (not a word processor like M/S Word). I use Notepad++ which is free for download!

All we are going to change is the two places where it says "" ON LINE THREE ONLY! You will change it to your domain name. For this example I will change it to

<p style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><em>
<a href="">COPY-IT-RIGHT © 2009 </a>
<a href="">Filipina.Fil.Net</a>

Notice how I changed and Capitalized the the Filipina.Fil.Net? That is the part that people will read. So really you can put anything there like a personal name like "Percila Andes" or a company name like "Jose Cruz, Inc." or "The Puddle Jumper Shop"

When you put it into your webpage or blog it will look something like this:

COPY-IT-RIGHT © 2009 Filipina.Fil.Net

Or Like This...

The Puddle Jumper Shop

That is all there is too it!
The first part links to this page to tell people what COPY-IT-RIGHT is all about and the second part links to your page!

How does COPY-IT-RIGHT Work?

Well, actually we fall under what is called the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License. Now that is a mouth full!

We think COPY-IT-RIGHT sounds nicer but if you prefer you can use any of those below too. Even if you choose to use one of the ones below, we hope you will still place the little COPY-IT-Right text and link to us.

Phil Morton

Phil Morton and jonCates inspired the COPY-IT-RIGHT project in the arts.

The Phil Morton Memorial Research Archive was initiated in 2007 by jonCates and is housed in The Film, Video & New Media Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It exists to organize and freely distribute Phil Morton's new media artwork, and also to perpetuate the COPY-IT-RIGHT ideal that Morton advocated. As you can read on the blog for the COPY-IT-RIGHT project, Morton sought to disseminate an anti-copyright attitude towards media and its distribution, especially artwork that is based in digital technologies. By referencing these ideals under the phrase 'COPY-IT-RIGHT', Morton sought to completely replace ingrained notions of copyright law by re-framing the term's meaning as a call to action. Make copies! It's the right thing to do! jonCates states that COPY-IT-RIGHT ranges in meaning from copyright reform to pro-piracy. "The COPY-IT-RIGHT ethic is presented by Morton as a value, even as a moral imperative, to share and freely exchange media," he said.
