DISCUSSION: On this type of question, the answer will literally be in the passage. You should have a map of the passage and know where to skim to find it. I knew the author described current copyright law near the start, sso I skimmed paragraphs 1 and 2. (Paragraph 3 is the argument against changing the law)
Also, you should see question 19 for a discussion of insane answer choices. The wrong answers are wrong because the author didn’t say them, of course. But three of the answers are also insane. And authors generally don’t say insane things.
- The author clearly says that site owners are able to place password restrictions (lines 46-49). This answer doesn’t mention public pages. It’s talking about any web pages. So, this answer means: if you make a private, secret web page, anyone should have unrestricted access. That….contradicts the author.
- This is crazy. See question 19 for a discussion of insane answers. This means that if you link to the US government’s website on Facebook, you become able to utterly control the distribution of that document to others. Including restricting distribution – you basically become the legal owner of a document by linking to it. That’s clearly wrong; you can’t hijack the US government by linking to it. The author would not (and did not) say something this insane.
- This is tempting, but the author didn’t say it, and it also isn’t true in the real world. For example, you could write an e-book, and license it to someone else for distribution. That’s how authors have published books for centuries. This answer says that’s illegal. It’s a crazy answer.
- CORRECT. Lines 20-23 say this directly.
- In lines 52-55 the author says we should not change copyright laws.
