Based on your media log, and the kind of media you use on a regular basis, what are your responsibilities in using media?
By Jimmy Lavorato
My personal media responsibilities are mostly involved with not committing plagiarism. Being enrolled in a college it’s my responsibility to use my resources in a way that credits both the hard work of myself and others that willingly pledge that work to assist me and others. Besides plagiarism, another thing that should be avoided is cyber-bullying. There’s been many occurrences of cyber bullying on the news where someone has been targeted online and treated badly. This is a bad type of bullying because sometimes mental punishment can be more damaging than actual physical punishment. Since the majority of my media usage was based on music-sharing and streaming websites, music pirating is another thing that shouldn’t be done. It’s important to not take the easy route and download free music because the artists that created that music worked hard and earned the money.
