  • By the end of this session, everyone here will be a multimedia producer with a finished piece to embed on a web site and share with others.
  • There is no system of registration for copyright protection in Australia. You do not need to publish your work, to put a copyright notice on it, or to do anything else to be covered by copyright — the protection is free and automatic. A work is protected automatically from the time it is first written down or recorded in some way, provided it has resulted from its creator’s skill and effort and is not simply copied from another work. The owner of a product or work is not necessarily the copyright owner. For instance, just because you buy a CD or pay for a music download does not give you the right to use it in a project or other public work. The creator is not necessarily the copyright owner – if the work as commissioned, done as an employee, made under Commonwealth, State or Territory control or if a contract was signed giving over copyright. Australian copyright law allows “fair dealing” for certain purposes, such as research, parody, criticism and reporting news. No permission is needed provided you use “less than a substantial part”. However, there is no set percentage – the question is whether what has been used is important, essential or distinctive to the original work. The US fair use provision has a broader, but less certain, application because it is not limited to use for particular purposes. Fair dealing does NOT include the right to copy, email or post to the internet, translate, make an arrangement or transcription of a musical work, create a dramatic work based on a literary work or vice versa, playing or performing a work in public. The Australian Copyright Council web site has a wide range of information sheets regarding copyright.
  • Creative Commons Licenses are designed to make sharing easier by providing simple to understand rights options that owners of copyright can apply to their work. The options these licenses provide sit between copyright/all rights reserved at one end of the scale and public domain at the other end. It was founded in 2001 and is led by a board of cyberlaw and intellectual property experts in response to the growing use of the internet as a way of finding resources to create and use. A US-based not for profit, the founders felt there needed to be a layer of reasonable, flexible copyright options for people who create work and those who want to re-use it. CC has also developed machine-readable metadata that makes it easy to find creative commons licensed works on the internet easy to find using a search engine. Every license includes links to layman and lawyer readable explanations. CC licenses have been translated into many languages and jurisdictions (legal systems) all over the world. They are designed to work internationally, so that even someone across the globe can understand the permissions you have granted them. Creative Commons licensing provides
  • An attribution only license means you can use the photo for any purpose you like, but give credit where it’s due. Attribution is part of most creative commons licenses.
  • Attribution plus a noncommercial license means that if you wish to use the photo in a work you plan to sell or to promote a commercial product or service, you do not receive the commercial right to do so via the license – you must negotiate with the license holder to obtain the commercial rights. If you wish to use it for freely available works or educational purposes, an attribution will suffice.
  • This license allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, and the author is credited. This starts putting restrictions on use – for instance, I couldn’t crop this photo and use it legally under a no derivatives license without asking the creator’s permission. The non-commercial restriction means that permission must be sought if the work were to be used in a commercial product.
  • You can use the work – video clip, photo, work of music – in or for anything – provided you credit the author and you must allow others freely use your finished product provided that the author is credited down the line . If you add Noncommercial – that means if anyone down the line mashing up wanted to create a commercial work he or she would have to get permission from all of the authors whose work comprise the work he/she wants to use. This implies a certain level of specificity that could end up being a real hassle in a video mash where the works of several people are involved.
  • The Creative Commons.org web site is the best place to start to find works you and your students can use, learn more about what the licenses mean, get Australian-specific information and to get code to license your own works. And the last word on copyright…
  • Generally it’s people who own and control copyright - so talk to them, person to person. If you see or hear something you want to use and the license isn’t open enough for you to use it as you’d wish – send an email or write a note explaining what you’d like to use it for and what you need. When setting up an edna Group for a polar expedition, we found a few Flickr photos that were copyrighted but just what we wanted -- so we asked the creator for permission to use them and he provided us access to dozens of beautiful images. And build a network by letting people know that you’re using their photos and what you’re using them for and in.

  • The final word on copyright – be it plain old copyright or Creative Commons - is simply “Ask”. People are involved in creating content. If you're confused about their intent, if you think you might be going against their wishes, ask them. It's a mixed up world out there, get out and play with some mixing. You'll create new content and may even make new friends!
