New Creative Commons Licensing is now available. Not too many changes for educators, but you can check out the details here at the creative commons. I had the chance to see Cable Green, Director of Global Learning, Creative Commons discuss the changes at this years OpenEducation Conference in Utah as well. See the video below for that talk.
Michael Geist has been a constant force and resource for information, critique, and action in the Canadian Copyright Fight over the past few years. His latest publication collects writing from some very well known names in the copyright world and brings them together in what I expect to be a very light read for the weekend….or…maybe not. Either way I intend to download my free copy and have a good look anyway and I suggest that you could do the same by clicking on the Book Cover.
Michael Geist came to the U of S as the Keynote speaker for this past years Tech Week Presentations. eMAP recorded his fantastic talk which outlined Canada’s struggling copyright fight over the past few years.
“Canada has been embroiled in a decade-long debate over copyright reform. With the latest round of reforms now concluded, this talk will review the evolution of the “Canadian copyfight” and the newfound voice of user concerns. It will also examine the implications of Bill C-11 as well as tackle the simmering disputes in education, creative industries, and international trade negotiations.”
