All our original presentations in PowerPoint format posted to the web are copyrighted and are subject to restrictions.
Is your material copyrighted and may I use it?

Answer: Yes, our material is copyrighted. Lin is a published author, and so am I. Plus, nearly all the original material on the web is copyrighted thanks to the new laws that immediately copyright original work loaded to the web. If you think you won't get caught copying someone else's work, be warned - there are companies on the web that keep track of these things. Many schools these days are paying a fee to these companies so they can see if their students are copying someone else's work.    

The question was: May I use your material? The answer is - absolutely, in your classroom for your students, with some restrictions as follows: You may NOT copy our work, put your name on it, and turn it in as your work. You may NOT post our work to the web without our written permission, be it on your site or any other site. You may NOT frame our site. You may NOT sell copies of our work without our written permission. To do so is copyright infraction, which is against the law, and violators can be prosecuted. The only exception to this is our publisher; our publisher may post our work on his site with our thanks for all his help.
