On the compilation of things gleaned from this list: There is a difference
between verbally sharing and putting things in writing. Perhaps the
distinction can be lost in the friendly format of internet meeting places.
When an "idea" is shared in verbal conversation with someone, it's free for
the taking - back to the classroom or wherever. However, as I understand
it, once the "idea" is put into the written form of directions it becomes
copyrighted. Again, MaryAnn has stated her intention to ask permission for
anything used so I don't see a problem.
