Creative Commons

Creative Commons is a way of sharing content legally, without infringing
on the copyright(s) held by the authors of works.

For example, suppose you as an author created a piece of music that
you wished others to use and alter as they saw fit. If you were to license
your work under a Creative Common sharing license, then you would
have the ability to allow your work to be shared and/or altered at will,
depending on the type CC license you get.

The video below explains what Creative Commons is, how it is used, etc.
Watch the video, and reflect how you can incorporate this new paradigm
in copyright into your classroom.





After you watch the video, you can view the slidecast from SlideShare by Rodd Lucier. Mr.
Lucier is a Canadian educator and e-consultant, and wants to promote 'creative integtrity'
in education.
