  • Class 2 spring 2011 creative commons

    1. 1. Presentation Author: J. Sklar Modified Spring 2011 by K. Diener What is Creative Commons? Do I care? Professional Portfolio Experience CEDo555 Class #5
    2. 2. Your work is yours, right? <ul><li>As we put our portfolios and other work online and into easily transportable electronic formats, we should begin to question what might happen to them. </li></ul><ul><li>I am always honored when someone wants to use my handouts, PowerPoints etc. </li></ul><ul><li>I just want to get credit for the time effort and content. </li></ul>
    3. 3. It is mine isn’t it? <ul><li>The work I create is mine. At least I believe it is. I thought it up, I put the pieces together. And of course, I’ve read a lot and seen a lot but none of that influenced my creativity, or did it? </li></ul><ul><li>All in all our work is a product of our clever interpretation of what we saw, felt, learned and interpreted. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Young people, and older folks too.. <ul><li>Today people have this idea that they can use what they find on the internet as theirs. </li></ul><ul><li>Grab a picture, video, idea or what have you. Make a few changes and put it in my paper, slide show, media presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Often we don’t mean to steal, we just forgot where we got that copy from. The clipboard on my computer doesn’t register the copyright. </li></ul>
    5. 5. A lot of work is already free… <ul><li>There is a tremendous body of materials that are there for the use. </li></ul><ul><li>Authors and other creators are glad to share their work.. No charge. </li></ul><ul><li>So what’s the problem? </li></ul>
    6. 6. Everyone is not willing to share… <ul><li>When a person creates artistic work they may want to make a living with it. They have a right. </li></ul><ul><li>These people want “all rights reserved!” </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t change a thing and pay me to see or use it. </li></ul><ul><li>They have a right. It is called a copyright! </li></ul>
    7. 7. Today’s NY Times…. <ul><li>Websites that help people share music and media through a system called Bit-Torrent. </li></ul><ul><li>They closed down gateway sites that show people where the torrents are. </li></ul><ul><li>The “pirates” claim google and yahoo do the same thing. (They do) </li></ul><ul><li>Search for torrents to see the article </li></ul>
    8. 8. Enter Creative Commons <ul><li>You need to go to their website. </li></ul><ul><li>I can’t possibly explain CC as well as they can. </li></ul><ul><li>The © on a document means that the rights to use it are controlled by the owner and essentially says “All rights reserved” </li></ul><ul><li>The CC on a document says, Its mine and you are welcome to use it. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Every CC license will <ul><li>Help you retain your copyright </li></ul><ul><li>Announce that other people’s fair use, first sale, and free expression rights are not affected by the license. </li></ul>
    10. 10. Every license requires licensees <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><li>to keep any copyright notice intact on all copies of your work; </li></ul><ul><li>to link to your license from copies of the work; </li></ul><ul><li>not to alter the terms of the license </li></ul><ul><li>not to use technology to restrict other licensees’ lawful uses of the work </li></ul>
    11. 11. Every license allows licensees, provided they live up to your conditions, <ul><li>to copy the work </li></ul><ul><li>to distribute it </li></ul><ul><li>to display or perform it publicly </li></ul><ul><li>to make digital public performances of it (e.g., webcasting) </li></ul><ul><li>to shift the work into another format as a verbatim copy </li></ul>
    12. 12. Every license <ul><li>applies worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>lasts for the duration of the work’s copyright </li></ul><ul><li>is not revocable </li></ul>
