#LCCOER – Creative Commons Licenses Workshop

Attendees will learn about the basics of open licenses (Creative Commons) including how to add open licenses to your work and best practices for attribution.

Notes:

  • Creative Commons FAQ
  • Consider your plans: Local (we can rely somewhat on fair use, library materials are paid for, we can make changes easily), Sharing (fair use is less applicable, because of distribution, subscription materials are not available everywhere), Grants (the founder may have restrictions, greater need for adaptation work, downstream users matter a lot).
  • Teach Act allows you to make copies for spontaneous use under Fair Use of copyrighted materials. However, reusing the same article is not covered under Fair Use. Using CC licenses is beneficial because they are openly licensed.
  • Elements of Licenses (Attribution, Share-Alike, Non-Derivative, Non-Commercial)
  • Currently the Creative Commons License is at 4.0.
  • Creative Commons Wiki
  • Creative Commons License Compatibility Chart

  • Goal is to maximize use and reuse.
  • TASL – Title, author, source, license.
  • CC Atribution 4.0 Creative Commons Marking – guidance of marking up work. E.g. “Chemistry” by OpenStax is licensed CC-BY 4.0.
  • Remixed work can only be shared if the licenses are compatible. 
  • For additional information about licenses see: Creative Commons FAQ 
  • Openly licensed content still has copyright.
  • Creating a CC license picker: https://creativecommons.org/choose/
  • Open Attribute is a browser plugin to capture CC license information.
  • Open Attribution Builder by Open Washington which provides assistance in creating a proper attribution.
