Creative Commons - understanding the basics (CC for Dummies) - a free webinar

Creative Commons (CC) licences are a simple way of retaining copyright whilst allowing others to reuse your work. The range of licences lets you define how others can reuse your material. This session will demonstrate how simple it is to use CC licences and what they mean in practice.

We will also introduce the UK repository JORUM, demonstrating how to apply CC licences to materials as you deposit.

Presented by Vivien Sieber and Siobhan Burke.
Moderated by Alex Fenlon.
