PRESENTATION AVAILABLE: Understanding Creative Commons Licenses
Ithaca, NY Greg Grossmeir knows his way around open content. As a Community Assistant for Creative Commons he is a liaison with the Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) community (http://www.flossworld.org/index.php), and enables software developers to learn about and implement Creative Commons metadata support in FLOSS applications. On January 13 he offered a free webinar, “Enabing Open Scholarship” as part of the All About Repositories series sponsored by DuraSpace, Sun and SPARC. He reviewed the history of open scholarship and how the use of six distinct Creative Commons (http://creativecommons.org) licenses to “share, remix, and reuse” digital content is leveraging new kinds of dynamic collaborations.
