Naomi Korn Consulting, commissioned by the Alliance has produced this short briefing paper on how Creative Commons (CC) licences can be embedded within digital resources created and managed by publically funded organizations. The paper aims to give an overview on the benefits of CC licence usage, some considerations to take into account before applying the licences as well as a ‘how to’ guide for embedding and come useful links. This paper accompanies further information on CC licences produced by the Strategic Content Alliance.
In addition, Naomi Korn Consulting has produced an A3 poster that explains the IPR position for organisations dealing with Orphan Works and how they can prevent more Orphan Works being created.
This poster can be printed and displayed within your organisations’ offices, libraries, reading and meeting rooms to draw attention and help staff and students understand some of the issues surrounding Orphan Works.
