Other notes

  • CC

Get people to give examples – of one concrete instance of how they would go about Licensing their video. Discuss how the Creative Commons, is to help `you' (the `Producer') to keep control of `your' work discuss the differences and implications of and betweeen, CC licenses, i.e. "non-commercial" prohibit use for any purpose, "no-derivatives" licenses prohibit modification, and the CC Sampling License Attribution, NonCommercial etc. Important to discuss how Non-free copyrighted material cannot be freely incorporated into one's work no matter what license one choses. Experimental, radical art and activism that does not play nice with third-party copyrights and trademarks can't be legally released and Used under whatever license anyway. Its work should rather - and explicitly - be released into the public domain.
