Add to the mix - definition of original
- I left out definition of original,
My other definitions all came from ArtLex - I will
also include the Copyrigh definition.
original - Any work considered to be an authentic
example of the works of an artist, rather than a
reproduction or imitation.... Not derived from
originality - The quality of being original. Used to

Legal definition of original:
Copyright protects "original works of authorship". A
work composed firsthand as the product of an author's
creativity - A work must be an original in order to
obtain a copyright.

Copying photographs is indeed a valuable skills
lesson, however, work should not be displayed as
