  12. 12. one more thing... Q. Why does Wikipedia have lots of educational resources about American culture but comparatively little from other countries (especially Australia/New Zealand)? (It’s not a language or digital divide problem) A. 1. US is more available 2. US has greater copyright freedom
  13. 13. AMERICAN Institutions: • high resolution (inc .tiff) • nuanced re-use policy • no pseudo-TPMs • default is open (esp. gov’t) AUSTRALIAN Institutions: • low resolution .jpg format • blanket claim of “personal and private use only” • (water)marking/zoomify etc. • Default is closed (esp.
