Photo by Paul Reynolds (cc) So today I'm forgoing the usual Fill-Me-In Friday post to talk about something that I've been wanting to blog about for a while but couldn't until the situation was wrapped up. For those of you who are super observant, you may have noticed some changes on my blog over the last few months. Tumblr posts went away.
Confusion over what constitutes illegal downloading is turning unwitting internet users into pirates. This is the key finding of a survey by law firm Wiggin, reported in today's Guardian. For information and advice on downloading and file sharing, click here The independent online survey of 2,500 respondents showed that as many as 44% thought is was legal to upload commercially-produced media to a file-sharing website, or did not know whether it was lawful or not. 35% thought it was legal to copy a film or television programme as a file from a friend, or again, did not know if it was legal or not. Most of those surveyed agreed that copyright is important and that infringement should be prevented, with 68% saying it was necessary to protect the creative industries from piracy , up from 55% in 2010. However, almost two-thirds admitted they regularly use search engines to find unauthorised content, with over one in four doing so on a daily basis.
This morning Greg Kulowiec and I are teaching a workshop on creating content in iBooks Author. I'm starting the morning with a discussion about Copyright, Creative Commons, and Fair Use. This collection of resources for locating music and sounds licensed for re-use is one that I am sharing with the group. The Free Music Archive provides free, high-quality, music in a wide range of genres. The content on Free Music Archive is used under various creative commons licenses. The New York State Music Fund provided initial funding for FMA.
Creative Commons is proud to announce the launch of our new license chooser tool . The license chooser has been completely redesigned for greater clarity and ease of use.

Just in time to celebrate Open Education Week , here comes a new initiative, the School of Open , a learning environment focused on increasing our understanding of “openness” and the benefits it brings to creativity and education in the digital age. Developed by the collaborative education platform Peer to Peer University (P2PU) with organizational support from Creative Commons , the School of Open aims to spread understanding of the power of this brave new world through free online classes. We hear about it all the time: Universal access to research, education and culture—all good things, without a doubt—made possible by things like open source software, open educational resources and the like.
If you are after images to use in learning and teaching the fear of copyright infringement can loom large. One way around this is to look for Creative Commons licensed resources.
