Presentation I gave a portion of at PodCamp. Unlike the other Creative Commons presentation I have listed, this one is more general and geared not at trainers, but bloggers.

  • Quite frankly, I doubt I’ll be able to keep up with your chat. If you’ve got a question, go ahead and ask your peers in chat. I’m certainly not the smartest person in this virtual room, so I bet there will be someone who might have an answer. If you don’t find the answer from others in chat, ask again when I get to a questions slide.
  • I’m a blogger, and a writer, and due to personal need, I’ve researched this quite a bit.
  • POLL What do you need for your training? Images Videos Audio Other (Please type in Chat)
  • Well, you can get them off the web, but you need to be careful. Images and media are not always in the public domain. I also used to teach college kids how to create a web page. Before I let them use a graphic, I made sure they contacted the owner to gain permission. It’s just smart to make sure your media is legal.
  • POLL Your work is copyrighted when … q. When you officially file for it b. When you create it c. When you imagine it. ALL BUT C. A & B ARE CORRECT.
  • ALL BUT C. A & B ARE CORRECT. Copyright = All Rights Reserved
  • VIDEO That’s where Creative Commons comes in. They’ve worked with the Office of Copyrights and a slew of lawyers to develop licenses that allow people to share their work and allow you to re-use it. This video is derived from a video the Creative Commons folks offer. I shortened it slightly for our purposes. Under a CC license, I was allowed to use the video and make changes to it. Anything can be licensed under CC. Books, music, images, video – anything.
  • Creative Commons offers 6 different types of licenses. Read all about them, as well as license your own work, at CreativeCommons.org CC licenses are non-revokable. You can change your mind, but you can’t take back the license someone is already using. Exist in addition to and on top of copyright. “Hey, it’s mine, but you can use it with some ground rules.”
  • POLL When can non-commercial be used? For internal use only at a for-profit company, when no profit is made from the use On your blog, which also uses Google AdWords You give a presentation to others from which you make no money
  • That was sort of a trick question. The answer is open for debate. As long as your work is not primarily intended for commercial gain, you should be okay. “ What does and doesn't constitute commercial use is not easy to answer. If you are unsure then you should contact the copyright holder for permission.  Alternatively, you could search for works under a more permissive license.   The license states that the use cannot be "primarily intended" for commercial gain, but what that phrase means is open to debate. Commercial Test for Fair Use: Does it impinge on the copyright owner’s ability to profit from the item?
  • Now that you know about Creative Commons, the question becomes, how do you find things licensed under it? CC Search accesses Google, Yahoo, Flickr, blip.tv, OWL music, and SpinXpress (all media). CC Search is also built into your Firefox browser, if you use Firefox.
  • CC Search is also built into your Firefox browser, if you use Firefox. Accesses the same search as CreativeCommons.org
  • Yahoo offers a CC search as well.
  • POLL True/False If you put your images on Flickr, anyone can use them. False. You can license your works All Rights Reserved. Can people still steal them? If they’re creative about it, but your license does hold.
  • Flickr Flickr is a great place to store your images, and an equally great resource for finding images for your training. I use CC-licensed Flickr images in most of my presentations. How to search for CC images on Flickr How to protect your own images on Flickr
  • Another method for searching Flickr. If you don’t turn on CC ONLY in the toolbar, then just look for the blue-lined images. Those are CC-licensed. Everything else is All Rights Reserved.
  • Launched via Google Images last fall Available for personal use and non-commercial use
  • StockVault allows you to search for your images. Their terms of use request that you not use the images in inappropriate ways or to make money. Attribution is appreciated, but not required.
  • MorgueFile (named for newspaper archive files) allows you to search for your images. Their terms of use request that you not use the images in inappropriate ways or to make money. Attribution is appreciated, but not required.
  • Blip.tv is a video sharing site, similar to YouTube. In my experience, sites like Blip.tv tend to have better quality video. Blip.tv uses CC licensing.
  • YouTube YouTube requires common sense. If it’s obviously copyright infringement (tv show, movie, etc), you shouldn’t use it. It’ll probably disappear soon anyway. For instance, it’s almost impossible to find old Saturday Night Live clips, such as Will Ferrell’s Shaun Mondavi sketch. NBC has pulled any clips available and has only issued controlled videos, such as their digital shorts.
  • When you upload a video to YouTube, you are given options: Public or private Embedding or not Comments, responses, ratings
  • Clips are share-able, embeddable
  • POLL Podcasts/vodcasts can use snippets of popular music or video (audio) if: A. Used for criticism, such as a movie review B. Used for intros and exits, such as theme music C. Used as an example for educational purposes D. The clip is in the public domain ALL BUT B A & C fall under Fair Use D is always okay
  • ALL BUT B A & C fall under Fair Use D is always okay
  • Slideshare.net Fantastic for research Can upload PPT, Keynote, or PDF files. Can set specifications: downloadable, Creative Commons licenses + All Rights Reserved Show edit screen for one of my own presentations
  • DocStoc Embeddable in websites Downloadable in PDF format Upload documents in Word, OpenOffice, and PDF format Collaboration / Commenting DocStoc Sync Private documents with invited sharing, monitoring Scribd Embeddable in websites Downloadable in PDF format Upload documents in Word, PDF format Collaboration / Commenting Private documents with invited sharing
  • MIT Opencourseware Initiative Licensed under Creative Commons – noncommercial use, sharealike
  • Open Source software is software that is developed collaboratively. The code is freely available and any one can build upon it or make improvements. This leads to well-supported, often surprisingly well-documented, software. Sourceforge is the repository for the compiled software, much documentation, and the code. OSalt lists both the Commerical versions and Open Source versions for comparisons Browser – Firefox Photo Editing – GIMP and GIMPshop (Photoshop replacement) Audio Editing – Audacity Email – Thunderbird MS Office Replacement – Open Office VLC; Video Media Player Content Management Systems: Drupal, Joomla Many many many more!
