Creative Creative Commons, le meilleur des deux mondes ? un dossier sur le site Droit-TIC « :: S.I.Lex :: Creative Commons, le meilleur des deux mondes ? Pierres-Yves Thoumsin Le site Droit & Technologies a mis en ligne en début de semaine un consistant dossier sur les licences Creatives Commons, écrit par l’avocat belge Pierre-Yves Thoumsin, que je vous recommande vivement. Cette étude présente à la fois la philosophie et les mécanismes des licences Creatives Commons, inventées à l’Université de Stanford sous l’impulsion du juriste Lawrence Lessig et qui sont devenues en quelques années l’un des piliers du développement de la culture libre. L’analyse de Pierres-Yves Thoumsin montre bien que les licences Creative Commons ne constituent pas une rupture ou un abandon de la logique de la propriété intellectuelle, mais bien un aménagement qui permet aux auteurs de choisir quels droits ils souhaitent conserver sur leurs créations et quels droits ils préfèrent mettre entre parenthèses pour favoriser la circulation et la réutilisation des oeuvres.

Grid Paper PDFs Free Online Graph Paper / Grid Paper PDFs Downloadable and very printable, I find these PDFs extremely useful. Tip number one! Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... So if you're running Windows, you may need to right-click a link and choose "Save link to disk". Tip number two! Some people may need to turn off the option in Adobe's Acrobat reader "shrink to fit" which may resize the grid slightly to fit your printer's printable area. Tip number three! If you want the hexes aligned with the other edge of the paper, just make your paper size "11 x 8.5" and print the result in landscape mode!

Creative Commons Licenses Our public copyright licenses incorporate a unique and innovative “three-layer” design. Each license begins as a traditional legal tool, in the kind of language and text formats that most lawyers know and love. We call this the Legal Code layer of each license. But since most creators, educators, and scientists are not in fact lawyers, we also make the licenses available in a format that normal people can read — the Commons Deed (also known as the “human readable” version of the license). The Commons Deed is a handy reference for licensors and licensees, summarizing and expressing some of the most important terms and conditions. Think of the Commons Deed as a user-friendly interface to the Legal Code beneath, although the Deed itself is not a license, and its contents are not part of the Legal Code itself. Searching for open content is an important function enabled by our approach.

Une liste de 400 sites sous Creative Commons Sur un média wiki j’ai commencé en 2005 une collecte dé références de sites qui faisait le choix de contenus réutilisables par d’autres en utilisant la licence Creative Commons. Au fil des échanges et des rencontres cette liste a grossi très doucement en 2006et 2007 : 148 sites notés en janvier 2008. Puis la collecte s’ést élargie en 2008 : 215 sites en novembre 2008 et surtout depuis un an : plus de 400 sites référencés en décembre 2009. Comme le temps passé de mon côté reste limité, que le bnombre de contributeurs n’est pas iomportant j’y vois un développement de l’usage des licences creative commons. Peut-être aussi que l’usage d’outils comme twitter qui croisent les références d’articles favorise cette collecte en signalant nombre de sites que je ne connaissais pas. Cette page est un outil très rustique de collecte mais elle a le mérite d’exister et de donner à voir la richesse croissance des sites et blogs qui font le choix de mettre à disposition des autres leur contenus.

Film project aims to raise £1 million to make a Creative Commons-licenced film - Wikinews Friday, June 23, 2006 Matt Hanson Matt Hanson aims to raise £1 million to fund the production of a feature-length film which would be distributed freely via the Internet under a Creative Commons licence, all funded through 50,000 people each donating £25 to the project, which he's called 'A Swarm of Angels'. No stranger to filmmaking, Matt has produced numerous digital short films, a series of books on digital filmmaking and set up the digital film festival onedotzero, now in its tenth year. He wants to finally make a feature length film, and decided that it was better to turn to the Internet for help and funding rather than plod through the usual 'development hell'. "I wanted to put into practice what I’ve been preaching as a film futurist for ten years, and the technology and Internet infrastructure has just really caught up with that vision now for me to put it into practice." The process is inspired by the 'web 2.0' movement, using social and collaborative communities on the Internet.
