Outline from today's web conference on Creative Commons is shown here.
Today Deb Coates, Iowa State Extension IT Manager, and I presented "Understanding and Using Creative Commons". The description of the session was: Sharing and obtaining information on the Internet is extremely easy. However, it is confusing to know what products you can use and which are restricted. You may want to share products, such as pictures and presentations, but don't know how to share with appropriate license or copyright. In the past, sharing products meant that you gave away your products with no control or that you restricted control of the distribution of your products by full copyright (all rights reserved). Creative Commons licenses provide options between the extremes of giving your rights away and all rights reserved. This session will describe Creative Commons license options, describe how to use Creative Commons licenses, and how to use products and content that are licensed using Creative Commons. This Professional Development session is offered in partnership with the ACE Information Technology SIG.
