Description:

This workshop will introduce participants to creative commons licenses, which allow more freedom than traditional copyright for access, distribution, and re-use. Creative Commons licenses give everyone from individual creators to large institutions a standardized way to grant the public permission to use their creative work under copyright law. They also ensure that licensors get credit for the work they deserve. This workshop will be useful for creators (anyone in the Rowan community) who want to make their work more accessible and for creators who want to reuse and adapt existing materials in their work.
