  • Focus on bold :: explain 1) public domain 2) the commons 3) media as cultural artifacts? 4) influencing culture Copyright with all rights reserved (with virtually zero rights to folks who want to use your work) is automatic. Copyright is a set of exclusive rights granted to the author or creator of an original work , including the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work. Copyright does not protect ideas, only their expression or fixation. In most jurisdictions copyright arises upon fixation and does not need to be registered. W/O intervention by the creator (copyright owner) works do not enter the public domain for +/- 70 years. Copyright owners have the exclusive statutory right to exercise control over copying and other exploitation of the works for a specific period of time, after which the work is said to enter the public domain. Uses which are covered under limitations and exceptions to copyright, such as fair use, do not require permission from the copyright owner. All other uses require permission and copyright owners can license or permanently transfer or assign their exclusive rights to others. Initially copyright law only applied to the copying of books. Over time other uses such as translations and derivative works were made subject to copyright and copyright now covers a wide range of works, including maps, dramatic works, paintings, photographs, sound recordings, motion pictures and computer programs. The British Statute of Anne 1709, full title "An Act for the Encouragement of Learning, by vesting the Copies of Printed Books in the Authors or purchasers of such Copies, during the Times therein mentioned", was the first copyright statute.
  • Not a lecture or preso on copyright. Each of you are creating more and more content (intellectual property) - proactively engage in how you want what you create to be used.
  • Examples -- video produced about USF but used industry music. Could not be used for www.usfca.ed :: my recent blog post about your this classes Gleeson photo sets - could not use any of the photos b/c they were not CC licensed (at least not without contacting the producers and securing permission before posting) :: Manage your online persona
