Based on your media log, and the kind of media you use on a regular basis, what are your responsibilities in using media?
My legal responsibilities in media are as follows: the use of in-text citations (or citations of some kind) for ideas and words that do not belong to me, no publishing of content that could be considered a libel or a slander, no publishing of content that could be considered hate speech, no publishing of content that is obscene in nature, and no publishing of content that could incite harm.
All of these stipulations have been upheld in the Supreme Court and lower courts based on precedent, legality, and morality. My personal reasons for upholding these responsibilities are that the choice to ignore these responsibilities inevitably harms others and it is against my core beliefs to perpetrate them.
