Try this... collect something your students have created that displays their photos or artwork (posters, ads, poetry, etc.). Return the next day with money in hand (I know you teach, but scrounge up several $1 bills). Begin counting it in front of your students. Someone will surely ask questions! Tell them you sold their work to XYZ. When they ask how much money they are getting (you know they will ask), tell them, "Oh no, I used your work to make some money for myself. I'm going out to dinner." If you have a sweet bunch of students, you may have to do a little prodding to get a reaction, but, most likely, someone will point out the fact that you are being unfair! This is where you bring in copyright laws and talk about how to respect and correctly use others' property.
