#23 (WEEK 9) Copyright, Creative Commons, and Congratulations!

Putting the ‘social’ into social networks allows us to freely exchange information. But with the free exchange of information comes the responsibility of how we share it, and how we give credit to the author of that information. Check out this video, “A Fair(y) Use Tale” and learn some history of copyright.

Creative Commons: Share, Remix, Reuse — Legally

Creative Commons provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. You can use CC to change your copyright terms from "All Rights Reserved" to "Some Rights Reserved."

"We're a nonprofit organization. Everything we do — including the software we create — is free."

Congratulations on Completing the Raven About Web 2.0 Tutorial. The team hopes that this journey has been one of exploration and fun. You have one more blog entry to write. We would like your feedback on the experience. What worked, what didn't and things that would help the next group be more successful. We appreciate your spending time with us and welcome your feedback.

Remember that if you are doing this program for credit, you need to notify your instructor when you are finished with all the assignments.
