  • First off – I am not a lawyer, therefore, I am not an expert on copyright or what happens to you if you violate copyright.My sister is a lawyer - No, not that one, the other one. Even she would tell you, though: the best rule of thumb is simply not to use photos you just find online.
  • Example: Dick Smith Library in YouTube
  • Example: Dumbach
  • Example: mission san jose san antonio texas
  • Example:Joseph churchhoustontexas
  • Example: Smilgiai, Lithuania
  • How do we add the CC attributions? See the attribution at the bottom? Title of picture, author, link to picture, CC license. Part of CC is attributing how the artist instructs you to attribute.
  • Not everyone puts in the details. Sometimes that distracts from the slide, so putting it at the end is more appropriate. You don’t have to make the links live in a Powerpoint.
  • Firefox add-on (also for Google Chrome, Opera, WordPress, and Drupal)

  • According to Creative Commons you need to:1) keep intact any copyright notices for the work2) Cite the authors name, screen name, useridentification, etc. It is nice to link or provide URLto the persons profile page, if such a page exists.3) Cite the works title or name, if such a thingexists. It is nice to link the name or title directlyto the original work, or provide the URL. 39
  • According to Creative Commons you need to :4) Cite the specific CC license the work isunder, and link to or provide the URL for thespecific CC license.5) If you are making a derivative work, you alsoneed to identify that your work is an adaptation.For example, “This is an adaptation of [title oforiginal work] by [original author] from [sourceURL+, *CC license and link/URL+” 40

  • Using 43
  • Using You can choose either HTML format (if you need the code for embedding, for example) or Plain Text format (for documents, PowerPoints, etc.) To view the full attribution, along with other information about the page, click “More information” (my recommendation) 44
  • I recommend using the “More Information” link, which opens a new window, so you can seewhat pieces of the attribution might be missing. If the Creative Commons license code onthe web page doesn’t include complete attribution information, Open Attribute might not beable to generate the full attribution for you. This web page had all the information. You canstill switch from HTML to Plain Text on this page, and copy the attribution. 45
  • Using OpenAttribute - example /Even without, all the informationyou need for an attribution is on this Flickr screen. 46
  • Examples of attributions from <- Plain Text (for documents and places where live links aren’t possible or appropriate)HTML code (for embedding, etc.):<span about=""xmlns:dct="" xmlns:cc=""><ahref="" property="dct:title">StJosephs Catholic Church </a> / <a rel="cc:attributionURL" property="cc:attributionName"href="">R W</a> / <a rel="license"href="">CC BY-NC-ND 2.0</a></span> 47
