Failure of Creative Commons Licenses

Tony Karrer

I’ve been trying to find out more about specific answers to Creative Commons Use in For-Profit Company eLearning. I was contacted by someone out of the Creative Commons organization, but in going back and forth with them, we realized that I was looking for legal interpretations which they clearly can’t do. This common interpretation is important if you are going to defend your use of licensed materials.

4 reasons to use Creative Commons

Learning with 'e's

In the social media age, sharing and repurposing are common place. This raises a number of tensions around creativity, intellectual property and copyright. Creative Commons (CC) is a copyright management system that goes a long way to addressing these issues. Creative Commons licences can enable teachers everywhere to access content and share their ideas freely.

Integrity, credibility and plagiarism

Learning with 'e's

The following half a dozen or so slides were also from one of my presentations, but I was annoyed to see that my name and the Creative Commons licence I always apply to my slides had been removed. Somehow, I managed to keep quiet during the presentation, but I later approached the speaker at the end of the session, and pointed out to him that he had used several of my slides without acknowledging me, and that the Creative Commons (CC) licence had also been removed.

Share and share alike

Learning with 'e's

Since I took the decision to offer all my blogposts and slideshows for free under a Creative Commons License, allowing anyone to freely copy and also repurpose my work, some interesting things have happened. It was self evident in the licence I applied from Creative Commons. My ideas are out there for all to read, share and discuss, and that is my reward for offering my work for free under a Creative Commons licence.

Giving it all away

Learning with e's

Increasingly, due to the good offices of Creative Commons, much of the content on the web can be legally repurposed or appropriated for other use. A lot of art and music could be said to be 'derivative' - and there have been many court cases and fallings out over this grey area of creativity, but here's my point: I don't mind at all if other people borrow my content for their own purposes, as long as they attribute it to me and don't make any commercial profit at my expense.

The Commons touch

Learning with 'e's

In the last few years, the introduction of Creative Commons licensing has ensured that a lot of web based content is now open for reuse, repurposing and even commercial use. Essentially, Creative Commons has established a set of licences that enables content creators to waive their right to receive any royalties or other payment for their work. Now you have a collection of images you can use under the agreements of Creative Commons.

Dialogue, debate and destinations

Learning with 'e's

I was challenged by delegates at Solstice to elaborate on the legal and ethical issues of Creative Commons and other Copyleft approaches. Creative Commons, I explained, is a means of circumventing Internet Copyright constraints.
