The New Rules of Copyright
Salpeter, Judy
Technology & Learning, v29 n3 p33 Oct 2008
Complying with, and teaching young people about, copyright in an educational setting often feels burdensome. That's because copyright laws were not designed to facilitate the sort of sharing and collaborating that has become widespread in the digital age. The innovative nonprofit organization Creative Commons turns the process around, making the concept of protecting and sharing work online not onerous, but positive. This article presents an interview with Ahrash Bissell, Executive Director of Creative Commons' ccLearn division. In this interview, Bissell discusses how schools can use online information the right way. A condensed description of Creative Commons and a list of copyright do's and don'ts are presented.
