  • Opening Medical Resources

    1. 1. Creative Commons:Opening Your Educational Resources<br />Lila Bailey<br />Open Education Counsel, Creative Commons<br />November 7, 2009<br />
    2. 2. More permissions = More open.<br />Whatmakes a resourceOPEN?<br />The ability to:<br /> • Access— Read, Review, Learn <br /> • Share — Copy, Distribute, Display<br /> • Adapt — Translate, Localize, Remix<br />Text<br />The openness of a resource increases with the copyright permissions granted. <br />
    3. 3. Openness enables…<br /><ul><li>Access to high-quality information – people use the Internet to find out about their health issues. Opening your resources makes it more likely that they will find quality medical information from you, not from “crazies” on the Web
    4. 4. Updates to your resources – medical information often changes rapidly, openness lets others keep your resources up to date
    5. 5. Localization/customization of resources – allows others to adapt resources to different populations
    6. 6. Feedback loops – invites your colleagues into a conversation</li></li></ul><li>Openness is a Choice<br /><ul><li> Copyright protection is automatic, no notice is required.
    7. 7. If you do nothing, “all-rights-reserved” copyright will apply by default to everything you create.
    8. 8. You must actively choose an open copyright license if you wish to give others permission to share and adapt your works.</li></li></ul><li>Using Other People’s Work<br /><ul><li> Just because something is available on the Internet does not mean it may be used, shared, and remixed legally. If a work is not marked with an open license, then “all-rights-reserved” copyright applies.
    9. 9. Yes, even if it’s on YouTube, on a blog, on Flickr. Publicly available is not the same as public domain.
    10. 10. Fair Use is not sufficient for sharing on the Internet – too uncertain, only applies in a few countries.</li></li></ul><li>But technology allows more than the law does!<br />Law<br />
    11. 11. Creative Commons is a non-profit organization that offers an easy way for people to share and reuse materials, without having to ask permission or rely on narrow educational exceptions or limited legal doctrines like fair use.<br />openDemocracy cba<br /><br />
    12. 12. Creative Commons Licenses<br />• CC Licenses work globally within the existing copyright system by allowing creators to change “All Rights Reserved” copyright to “Some Rights Reserved.”<br />• When using a CC license, you retain ownership of the work; you simply choose which freedoms you wish your work to carry automatically, without requiring permission.<br />Text<br /><ul><li> This makes perfect sense in education especially, </li></ul>since many people want to share and build off of <br />each other’s work. <br />
    13. 13. Four License Conditions<br />CC licences are comprised of combinations of 4 basic elements:<br />Attribution (Credit must be given to the author)<br />Non-Commercial (No one but the author makes $ from the work)<br />No Derivatives (Only exact copies allowed)<br />Share Alike (Derivative works must carry the same license terms)<br />
    14. 14. Six CC License Options<br />Attribution, <br />Share Alike<br />Attribution Only<br />Attribution, Non-Commercial<br />Attribution,<br />Non-Commercial, <br />Share Alike<br />Attribution, No Derivatives<br />Attribution, <br />Non-Commercial, <br />No Derivatives<br />
    15. 15. CC Licenses are Expressed Three Ways:<br />
    16. 16. CC License Compatibility<br />We recommend CC BY for Open Educational Resources because <br />it is our most permissive and most compatible license.<br />
