They are often troubled by the fact that it is there open to be used, if it is that they did not want another person to use their work why not hide or not post this work. I was on the fence about this for a work, we recently did a copyright professional development in school where we were told what we could use from the internet and what we could not do with the materials founded, this was based on materials founded as well as pictures, as these are the things that teaches mostly copyrighted. This a was heated as the teachers believed that the material is being used for educational purpose and it was uploaded to be seen. I understand that all the legalities of posting and borrowing without asking therefore I stay away from using their materials.
