Content Sharing – Week 8 Reflection

Posted: May 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

Flickr is an interesting tool which we investigate further as part of our activites in this weeks tutorial. I particulary enjoyed searching for photos that I could reuse under the creative commons licensing criteria. It learn’t how to navigate and investigate photographs, and have a better under of the creative commons licensing criteria also.

The Australian Creative Commons organisation, as stated on their website ” Creative Commons is an international non-profit organisation that provides free licences and tools that copyright owners can use to allow others to share, reuse and remix their material, legally.

Creative Commons Australia is the affiliate that supports Creative Commons in Australia and administers the Australian Creative Commons licences. ”

The license terms are outlined on this page Anyone involved in online media, should participate and familiarise themselve on the use of the creative commons licensing.

Under creative commons you should

• credit the creator;

• provide the title of the work;

• provide the URL where the work is hosted;

• indicate the type of licence it is available under and provide a link to the licence (so others can find out the licence terms); and

• keep intact any copyright notice associated with the work.
