  3. 3. What is Creative Commons? <ul><li>Creative Commons defines the spectrum of possibilities between full copyright (all rights reserved) and the public domain (no rights reserved) </li></ul><ul><li>CC licences allow creators to retain copyright, while inviting certain uses of the work, a &quot;some rights reserved&quot; copyright </li></ul>
  4. 4. Creative Commons Movement <ul><li>As mentioned previously the CC movement evolved from open source software ideas and licences </li></ul><ul><li>US lawyer Lawrence Lessig established the public domain Web site site after participating in an unsuccessful lawsuit </li></ul><ul><li>Lessig decided he wanted to “ attempt to redesign copyright from within” </li></ul><ul><li>CC was officially founded in 2001 after Lessig received a grant from the Centre for Public Domain (CPD) </li></ul><ul><li>Lessig was assisted by IPR and IT experts (including James Boyle, Michael Carroll, Eric Saltzman, Hal Abelson and Eric Eldred) and fellows and students from Harvard Law School </li></ul><ul><li>Many respected experts now sit on the board of directors </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why CC? <ul><li>The idea of universal access to research, education, and culture is made possible by the Internet, but our legal and social systems don’t always allow that idea to be realized. Copyright was created long before the emergence of the Internet, and can make it hard to legally perform actions we take for granted on the network: copy, paste, edit source, and post to the Web. The default setting of copyright law requires all of these actions to have explicit permission, granted in advance, whether you’re an artist, teacher, scientist, librarian, policymaker, or just a regular user. To achieve the vision of universal access, someone needed to provide a free, public, and standardized infrastructure that creates a balance between the reality of the Internet and the reality of copyright laws. That someone is Creative Commons. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Who Uses CC? <ul><li>Creative Commons develops, supports, and stewards legal and technical infrastructure that maximizes digital creativity, sharing, and innovation. </li></ul><ul><li>The best known users of Creative Commons licenses. You can also search hundreds of millions of CC licensed works and choose a license for your own. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikipedia Google Flickr </li></ul>
  7. 7. Culture <ul><li>The goal at Creative Commons is to increase cultural creativity in “the commons” — the body of work freely available to the public for legal use, We realize there’s an inherent conflict between innovative digital culture and archaic copyright laws. Our licenses help bridge that conflict so that the Internet can reach its full potential. </li></ul>
  8. 8. CC Licences <ul><li>The idea of the movement was to create licences that were: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>easy-to-use </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Used current copyright law to achieve their effect </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Would allow creators to share their work with the public whilst maintaining certain control over it </li></ul></ul><ul><li>There are now 16 million works using CC licences (wikipedia) </li></ul>
  9. 9. CC Baseline Rights #1 <ul><li>Every licence will help you </li></ul><ul><ul><li>retain your copyright </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>announce that other people's fair use, first sale, and free expression rights are not affected by the licence </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Every licence requires licencees </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to get your permission to do any of the things you choose to restrict e.g., make a commercial use, create a derivative work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to keep any copyright notice intact on all copies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to link to your licence from copies of the work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>not to alter the terms of the licence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>not to use technology to restrict other licencees' lawful uses of the work (note this includes technical protection measures) </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. CC Baseline Rights #2 <ul><li>Every licence allows licencees, provided they live up to your conditions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>to copy the work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to distribute it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to display or perform it publicly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to make digital public performances of it (e.g., webcasting) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>to shift the work into another format as a verbatim copy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Every licence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>applies worldwide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>lasts for the duration of the work's copyright </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>is not revocable </li></ul></ul>
