Joanna Wild & Rowan Wilson - CC BY: what does it mean for scholarly articles?

CC BY is not essential for Open Access. However, making a paper Open Access without the CC BY licence, or with a more restrictive type of Creative Commons licence (e.g. CC BY-ND or CC BY-NC), may mean that a reader must still obtain your specific permission to adapt the work and/or use it for commercial purposes.


The different flavours of CC licence enable you to be more restrictive if you want to be, but obviously the Government/RCUK wants its publicly funded research to be as unrestricted as possible.


CC BY just gives a more liberal blanket permission for some actions.

Creative Commons: New Annual Report and Strategy Document

Creative Commons: New Annual Report and Strategy Document | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

The resulting publication, The Future of Creative Commons (2.7 MB PDF), lays out priorities for each area in which we work. These overall priorities are already guiding staff in how they use their time and set targets for each program area. They also give us a good base to measure how well we are doing.

As a companion piece, we offer this annual report, Dispatches from the Commons. In it, we call out some of the big accomplishments of the past year and highlight organizations and people who are doing powerful and innovative things with our licenses.

“Teaching, learning and research materials in any medium, digital or otherwise, that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions. Open licensing is built within the existing framework of intellectual property rights as defined by relevant international conventions and respects the authorship of the work.” — Definition of OER by UNESCO, 2002

Contrary to Arguments by Hardcore Open Education Advocates, Creative Commons NC ND Is A Valid License for Academic Authors

Contrary to Arguments by Hardcore Open Education Advocates, Creative Commons NC ND  Is A Valid License for Academic Authors | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it
In summary, from my perspective as a content creator who has independently developed a major work, the CC 3.0 NC ND is not only a valid license, it’s the best license.

Matthias Andrasch - How-To: Maschinenlesbare Creative Commons-Lizenzen

Matthias Andrasch - How-To: Maschinenlesbare Creative Commons-Lizenzen | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

Die Creative Commons-Lizenzen haben inzwischen das Web erobert. Alleine der Foto-Dienst Flickr verzeichnete 2011 über 200 Millionen CC-lizensierte Bilder – Tendenz steigend. Theoretisch reicht der einfache Verweis “Lizensiert unter CC-BY-Lizenz” unter einem Blog-Beitrag oder einem Foto, um Inhalte mit einer “Creative Commons”-Lizenz zu publizieren.
Jedoch ist diese Angabe meist nicht “maschinenlesbar” für andere Dienste. In diesem Artikel erfahren Sie, was “maschinenlesbar” genau bedeutet, warum das Thema wichtig ist und welche Maßnahmen es braucht, um ihre Inhalte im Internet maschinenlesbar unter einer “Creative Commons”-Lizenz zu veröffentlichen.

Commercial Rights Reserved proposal outcome: no change - Creative Commons

CC recently considered a proposal to rename the NonCommercial license to “Commercial Rights Reserved”, as raised on this list back in December.

We have decided not to pursue that proposal, and to leave the name of the license the same. However, there is a possibility of using the “Commercial Rights Reserved” language in messaging and other informational materials about the license to make the function of the license clearer.

"In the last few months there has been quite a bit of discussion about what CC should do about the non-free licenses. Some have called for Creative Commons to retire or otherwise change the way we offer licenses containing the NonCommercial and NoDerivatives conditions because those licenses do not create a true commons of open content that everyone is free to use, redistribute, remix, and repurpose."
