New Video: Copyright and Creative Commons

Today we’re announcing a new video: Copyright and Creative Commons - Explained by Common Craft.
 


One of the exciting things about having Common Craft members is working with them on ideas for future video titles. We provide them tools for suggesting and voting on future titles and this idea came directly from the members. Yaay!

About the video:

This video tells the story of a photographer who learns the basics of copyright law and creative commons licensing. Her story highlights the role each can play in helping creators protect and share their work.  It teaches:
 
• Why copyright law exists
• How to copyright a creative work
