  • Might want to ask--who here has heard of CC before? Have them explain it. Go off of their response. I’m sure some of them have heard of it.
  • Just a general overview. Good to drive home the point that we are international, and your presence will give the organization a face. We’ll get to what we actually do later.
  • I would go over this briefly, say you’ll explain more about flexible terms and standard copyright later.
  • What do they make of this statement?
  • Drive home this point, that they use stuff for free off the Internet all the time without a second thought. Have they ever remixed anything? Do they watch YouTube/do they upload to it? Do they own a digital camera? Do they use Flickr? When they lift things off the Internet for reports, do they cite? Etc.
  • Show of hands, or just go through list.
  • Specify, “in general.”
  • How many of them have seen this? Been told this? How many teachers have lectured them about plagiarism? Talk a little about the RIAA maybe, lawsuits, etc. Have they heard of the Pirate Bay dude in Sweden or wherever?
  • Talk about how even you can use copyrighted works without permission, as long as its for certain purposes, etc. But the exceptions aren’t always clear in the law and it can be confusing. You’ll learn more about it later!
  • Specify, “in general.”
  • What WE do, as an org, is to provide you.... etc. Drive home the point that CC is copyright for the Internet. Talk about how Nine Inch Nails pre-cleared their album; they wanted to share it! Before CC, there was no way they could do that legally. With CC, they easily let their fans know what they can or can’t do with their music!
  • Talk about how copyright covers these rights. So CC lets creators give some or all of these rights away. The usual spiel.
  • Here, emphasize how the students, too, are creators, and can manage their own copyright with CC!
  • Talk about how even you can use copyrighted works without permission, as long as its for certain purposes, etc. But the exceptions aren’t always clear in the law and it can be confusing. You’ll learn more about it later!
  • A fun tangent, if they can hear via speakers. I couldn’t find the original interview, but most students know who Stephen Colbert is and just showing this is entertaining.
  • Basic overview of the conditions.
  • Just talk about it briefly, say there are four that turn into six licenses, giving various freedoms but that all of them require you to credit the original author. Say you’ll get into it next time--- the machine-readable, legal, etc. aspects of CC! CC is copyright for the Internet! = basic messaging point.
  • Voila! People can lift your stories and spread the news to China! (They have to attribute you of course.) Endless possiblities!
  • What do they think journalism has to do with it? Why would CC be relevant to what they do? Don’t have to get their input here---transition slide.
  • Have they heard about how print journalism is dying? Why do they think so? What do they think about it.
  • A lot of people now get their news via blogs and tweets. This is known as citizen journalism. Talk about how there are new media tools and platforms that journalism should be taking advantage.
  • An example - citizen contributed journalism. Talk a little about this project if you have time.
