Event Description

Founded in 2001, Creative Commons has become one of the most used open licensing schemes for those engaging in open scholarship. Understanding the nuances and complexities of using these licenses in your work can be a daunting task, especially with the rise of content creators using outdated versions of licenses for profit.

This session will provide participants with a more in-depth understanding of Creative Commons licenses and some of the potential pitfalls when using and assigning licenses to your work. Topics covered in this session include:

  • considerations for choosing an appropriate Creative Commons license
  • Creative Commons licenses and open culture
  • why the legal code behind Creative Commons licenses matters
  • how copyleft trolls take advantage of outdated licenses
  • when Creative Commons licenses might not be appropriate for your work

This session is held during Pacific Daylight Time – PDT Time Zone
