Copyright Flowchart: Can I Use It? Yes? No? If This… Then…

Especially when it comes to copyright, plagiarism and intellectual property. The waters are murky. Not being familiar with online digital rights and responsibilities (hey, teachers did not grow up with the Internet being around), educators are wading through uncharted waters (hey, I did not know that I could not just google an image to use. If someone puts it up online it is free for the taking). That does not mean they can close their eyes and pretend life is the same or that the same rules apply to online versus offline use of copyrighted material with their students. It is every educator’s responsibility to become familiar , observe and model for their students! I have written about copyright on this blog many time. The waters are murky, it is not an easy topic. We have ubiquitous digital access, ease of duplication and distribution of information.

Creative Commons images and you: a quick guide for image users

As publishers, we benefit from Creative Commons in a number of ways—we look things up in Creative Commons-licensed Wikipedia (used with caution, of course), the Creative Commons-related policy issues that we cover give us a steady stream of great news content, and we make use of Creative Commons-licensed images in our news stories. This last piece—the use of Creative Commons images—has historically been one of the trickiest issues for us to navigate as a publisher, given the number of different Creative Commons license types. Each Creative Commons license has its own set of restrictions, and, despite the fact that the license clauses seem fairly clear on the surface, it's not always obvious to us as end users what can be used where and for what purposes.

Note that this isn't solely a problem for sites like Ars and large publishing houses like Condé Nast. Attribution No Derivatives 1. Free image resources. There are many Web sources of images under free licenses.
