Creative Commons - Get Creative

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Michelle Franz (Administrator), Oct 07, 2012

Excellent presentation of the basics of copyright.  Gives simple explinations of legal issues that can be overwhelming to general public.  Then goes on to relate copyright to creative commons and the differences between the two. How they are complementary as opposed to competative.  Very useful as an instructional tool for those investigating and attempting to understand copyright law.

Technical Remarks:

The video is house on You Tube.  I was able to access via Firefox 15.0.1 on a Mac running OS 10.8.2.  Even with my high speed internet connection there were a few points where there were minor cutouts of the audio.  Though they were noticable they didn't detract from the content or my ability to learn from it.  The primary concern would be for K-12 institutions wanting to leverage this as a resources being unable to do so if You Tube access is restricted on their campus.
