    I think all people should know these terms because if when theyre older they end up working for a job that involves copyrighting or patents they would want to know these ahead of time so they have an advantage on other people applying for the job or even not to get fired. Learning this was kind of fun, I hated how the videos were so long but they made me realized how many things are copied that ive liked my whole life, like my old favorite movie series, Star Wars and me and my dad's old favorite band, Led Zeppelin.
