I am very interested in history so this assignment took me longer because I kept wanting to read and explore. There are certain things I added to my timeline, such as the creation of writing, language and religion. The reason being is that I kept asking myself who was literate? In the youtube video I cite in my sources, it informed mostly priests were "literate". I thought that was so interesting. Would Christianity as a whole be as powerful if the Bible were under present day copyright laws? It is also appalling how a monarch government can control how informed their society is with the creation of Stationers Company.
I created this timeline with screenshots of Powerpoint slides. I felt like I could control the font size better than other apps I tried. My audience is intended for the average citizen trying to Google to learn more about copyright basics in history. Therefore, I omitted from my timeline the years that were amended bc it changes many times. I was more interested in what works of art were added into the US Copyright Act itself.
