Grades 4-6 | Author Brianna DuMont presents Humorous History: Thomas Edison is Thief? - Nov 12, 2020 1:10pm EST
About this event:
We remember Thomas Edison as a great inventor. But was he actually just a thief? Using primary sources and research from his official biographer, we’ll talk about how Edison invented Hollywood—by stealing other people’s movies. All of those lawsuits helped create copyright laws, which continually evolve today. We’ll end with a game of Copyright or Wrong where kids can guess using memes and GIFs popular today, which ones are legal and what isn’t.
