February 3 Webinar: From Copyright to Creative Commons

February 2nd, 2011

From Copyright to Creative CommonsAs citizens of the 21-st century, we have reached a point in human history where content creation and consumption is at an all time high. With this increase the notion of copyright has become prominent among all who traffic information. This webinar will provide the participant with an introduction to the concepts of copyright.

During the 3:15pm webinar we have the honor of talking with Creative Commons Policy Coordinator, Tim Vollmer. He will be discussing Creative Commons from an educators point of view. There will be time for Q&A so make sure to bring your questions.

During the 7:15pm webinar we will be discussing Copyright and Creative Commons with as many layman’s terms as possible. Very often it is easy to get caught up in the jargon around copyright. This session aims to introduce participants to copyright, the public domain, fair use, and Creative Commons.

Come join us Thursday, February 3, 2011 at 3:15 or 7:15 pm.  To register for this webinar, select the Webcasts tab at the top of the page and register for the time desired.
