Copyright refers to the rights of authors in works of authorship —as distinguished from patents (whose subject matter is inventions), trademarks (which concern symbols of an enterprise’s reputation and goodwill) and trade secrets (information whose value derives from being kept a secret) (Zimmerman, 2006).
Fair use is the right to use copyrighted material without permission or payment under some circumstances, especially when the cultural or social benefits of the use are predominant (Kiyoi, 2012).

There are two types of citations; APA and MLA. APA gives the information your reader will need to find your source. It consists of the author’s last name and the year that it was published. MLA has two components; an in-text citation and a Works Cited page.
