I am John Bond from Riverwinds Consulting and this is Publishing Defined. Today I am going to look at Creative Commons. Creative Commons is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share. The organization has released several copyright-licenses known as Creative Commons licenses, free of charge to the public. These licenses allow individuals to indicate which rights they reserve, and which rights they waive for the benefit of other individuals. Creative Commons licenses do not replace copyright, but are based upon it. They bridge individual communication between the creator and a potential user or licensee. The result is an easy system that assists all parties involved. There are several licenses and they center around different conditions as chosen by the content creator: First, attribution or the acronym BY. This means the licensees may copy, distribute, and display the work and make derivative works based on it, only if they give the author the attribution specified. Second, Share-alike or SA. Licensees may distribute derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs the original work. Third, Non-commercial or NC. Licensees may copy, distribute, and display the work and make derivative works based on it only for non-commercial purposes. Finally, Non-derivative or ND. Licensees may copy, distribute, and display only exact copies of the work, not derivative works based on it. Common licenses someone might use are: CC BY, CC NC, CC ND, CC SA, CC NC SA, or CC NC ND. There are other licenses as well. Creative Commons was founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, Hal Abelson, and Eric Eldred with the support of Center for the Public Domain. The first set of copyright licenses was released the following year. As of 2016, there were over 1.1 billion works licensed under the various Creative Commons licenses. Some of the major organizations using Creative Commons licenses are: YouTube, Wikipedia, Flickr, the Internet Archive, Vimeo, Wikimedia Commons, PLOS, and many, many others. While there are criticisms of these licenses and the organization (see their Wikipedia page for a discussion about them), no one can deny the tremendous positive affect that Creative Commons has had on the creation and sharing of quality content and the democratization of knowledge. Well that’s it. I’ve released a new eBook called, “The Request for Proposal in Publishing: Managing the RFP Process.” It is a short, focused guide to this essential business task that associations or societies use to find potential publishing partners. See the link in the notes below for more information on the book or how to purchase it. Hit the Like button below if you enjoyed this video.
