Contributing to the Commons: Strategies for Using Open Licenses - #15NTCopenlicense

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Creative Commons, Open Source, and Open Data are all powerful resources for nonprofits that provide a much-needed alternative to the default “all rights reserved” model of copyright law. Many nonprofits are choosing to distribute content, code, and data they develop under an open license, allowing them to reach a wider audience while improving access to information, culture, and technological innovation, and increasing the number of works available to be remixed and built upon.

This panel discussion will include a brief introduction to copyright law and the legal underpinnings of the “open” movement, as well as an overview of various Creative Commons, open source, and open data licenses, and legal and practical concerns that may arise in connection with their use. Attendees will also hear practical tips for using open licensing, and learn how other nonprofits are successfully incorporating open licensing into their work.
