Understanding Creative Commons

Amidst the angst over the Orphan Works Act 2008, there is another movement among creatives meant to share their work under varying acceptable circumstances. It is known as Creative Commons.

Amidst the angst over the Orphan Works Act 2008, there is another movement among creatives meant to share their work under varying acceptable circumstances. It is known as Creative Commons. I’ve had a link to it on my blog nearly since its inception. You can see it on the left column. It looks like this: Creative Commons License This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.

I found the presentation below to give an excellent easy-to-comprehend understanding of how Creative Commons works. It uses free Slideshare software previously recommended here.

  1. Thanks for your comments and the links Joe. You are one of many who feel passionately about this flawed legislation.

    I am not sure what you mean by presentation, but I think you may misunderstand my intention. That is to too tone down the rhetoric so people can get an objective perspective. Something I wish our political parties will do. I’m not looking forward to the invective from both sides in the next two months.

    To be clear, I’m not in favor of the bill, never have been. I think the idea of finding a way to allow the use of truly orphaned works can be beneficial without causing harm anywhere. This bill is not close to achieving that goal.
