George Siemens put a plug in for this Creative Commons video. Thought I’d share it.
Some of the thoughts I’ve taken out to give you an idea of the video:
What does it mean to be human if we don’t have a shared culture? What does a shared culture mean if you can’t share it?
We have all these new technologies that allow people to express themselves, take control of their creative impulses, but the law gets in the way.
Creative Commons wants us to be able to say ‘here’s the freedom that I want to run with any creative work’.
A Creative Commons license says give me credit for my work.
Creative Commons allows you to exercise your copyright more simply.
It’s really about creativity and connection, access and control
Creative Commons is a bridge to this future – thinking not about content but about communities
It’s the space for more speech, more expression.
