Bite-size training: Creative Commons Licensing Training Course

Any business should stay ahead of emerging trends and different ways of doing business. Creative commons is an increasing art of business life in many areas; ranging from use of YouTube to other “freely” available content.

This course explains the how, what, why and when.



The Internet has opened the way to a massive influx of digital content, including much user-generated digital content. Many open platform organisations, including Google have been seeking ways to help copyright owners make their creative works available in a quick, simple way. From video to audio to software and beyond, the Creative Commons licensing suite is one of the main de facto standard means to achieve this with its form of licensing. This session examines how Creative Commons works as well as laying the foundation for an understanding of other open content licensing schemes. This 60 minute bite-size live training session carefully explains everything systematically and in layman’s terms.
