Do We Need to Teach Web Page Reading and Decoding Skills alongside Creative Commons?

Are we doing enough to teach students how to decipher and decode internet materials? I wonder if there are state testing questions asking kids where the web page publishing date is or who is the author? What about the copyright restrictions on materials? This seems like authentic tasks that our students need to know how to use and apply. What does the Creative Commmons logo look like? Do you have permission to reproduce this web page's work?

I'm looking at tightening up my assessments and intervention techniques and I'm curious where these "lost" skills fall into place.
