Copyright & Creative Commons: Alternative Licenses in the Arts
Copyright is the primary means of protecting an artists rights in his or her works.  However, understanding the nuances of copyright law and the implications the law has on using others works, or allowing others to use yours, can be daunting, and has led to increasing criticism of the U.S. copyright system as a whole.  
In 2001, Creative Commons was established with the goal of making it easier for people to share and build upon the work of others, and it has since developed a variety of model licenses that can be used when licensing ones works.  In this presentation, attorneys Jefferson Coulter, Nick Mitchell and Brian Rowe will discuss Creative Commons licenses and their use in the arts.  
The presentation will begin with a brief discussion of copyright law and copyright licensing, and the policy considerations that inform copyright law in the U.S.  The discussion will then turn to Creative Commons, with an examination of the reasons Creative Commons was established, what Creative Commons licenses are (and are not), why you may or may not want to use them, and important things to consider if you do.  A question and answer session will follow.
