*Info about Public Domain and Creative Commons: "Note: Even if a work that you use is in the public domain, it is advisable to provide attribution for the work or, at a minimum, keep a record of the attribution of the work, so that you or other interested parties can find it later if necessary.....All Creative Commons licenses require attribution to the creator. " Harvard Law School Library
ATTRIBUTION for Creative Commons Material:
From Creative Commons Australia:
The same principles apply to providing attribution across all CC licences. You should:
• credit the creator; *
• provide the title of the work; *
• provide the URL where the work is hosted; * (insert URL link in image)
• indicate the type of licence it is available under and provide a link to the licence (so others can find out the licence terms); and
• keep intact any copyright notice associated with the work.
This may sound like a lot of information, but there is flexibility in the way you present it. With a bit of clever formatting and linking it is easy to include all this information, particularly in the digital environment.
Note: DMS teachers would like the three elements shown with the * included under the image. Some will require only the link.
Copyright Free and Creative Commons Materials
Make sure that what you want to do with the images and music is OK under the terms of the particular Creative Commons license it’s under. CC-licensed images and music aren’t free for all uses, only some — so make sure to check out the terms (you can find these by clicking on each image's and song’s license icon).
Creative Commons licenses protect the people who use others' work, so they don’t have to worry about copyright infringement, as long as they abide by the conditions specified.
Legal Music For Videos: Many musicians choose to release their songs under Creative Commons licenses, which give you the legal right to do things like use their music in your videos.
