In 1790 the United States began a federal copyright law to protect authors and publishers published documents (Siwek, 2014). Since this enactment, the Library of Congress has overseen the Copyright Office, as one of their many responsibilities. The Library of Congress is not near the Copyright Office and has struggled to keep copyright obligations as a priority. In addition, it is argued that this copyright structure can be considered unconstitutional. Some of the powers are not aligned with all three branches of the government.
It is reported that 92% of teens use online resources daily, and 24% of these admit that they use to access online resources constantly (Lenhart, 2015). It is evident that students more than ever are using technology and dependent on it for schoolwork, social activities, and communication. The inability to unplug from technology has been linked to increased stress, anxiety, and depression (Bora, 2016). Students are unable to develop coping skills because they are unable to break away from technology. Rarely students are just completely unplugged, if they have any extra time, they are on their phones, texting, playing games, interacting on social media, or taking videos.
