Creative Commons is a powerful resource for nonprofits, as it provides free access to creative and informational content, and a simple solution for anyone looking to widely distribute educational and creative works. This talk will introduce the basics of copyright law and the legal underpinnings of Creative Commons. Through case studies, we’ll explore how you can use Creative Commons to engage with your community and to disseminate videos, images, and publications in a way that raises your organization’s public profile.

You will learn about the various Creative Commons licenses, how to search for works by a particular license, how to distribute a work under a Creative Commons license, and why you should be cautious when using works licensed with a non-commercial restriction, even at a nonprofit.
