Copyright is one of the many legal complexities non-profits encourter in their day to day operation. Knowing what you can and can't do with the content you use and create is confusing, but is a necessary evil. Creative Commons is one tool available to non-profits to help make sense of this area of law. At the core of the Creative Commons project is a suite of standardised copyright licences, freely avaialble to creators, that foster sharing and collaboration. Creative Commons builds upon the all rights reserved of traditional copyright to create a voluntary some rights reserved system. There is a whole range of content out there that is available on more flexible terms than traditional copyright. Elliott aims to give you the information you need to gain access to these resources and manage your own copyrighted works more efficiently.
