開放近用的公眾領域

Planet CC -

把「開放近用」(Open Access)和「公眾領域」(Public Domain)兩類概念併連,成為這篇短文的標題,是有些奇怪。公眾領域內的作品,不受著作權法的限制,任何人可以自由使用。至於開放近用,一般是指已公開的資訊,方便眾人親近使用。屬於公眾領域的,就已是開放近用,不是嗎? 在理想的情境下,的確我們不需要再強調公眾領域的開放近用特性。但是,現實上許多屬於公眾領域的,卻常不能被眾人自由取得、再次使用。公眾領域的概念,本質上已有些模糊,概指已超過著作權法保護年限的作品(或是自始即不受保護的對象,如法律條文、政府公文書等),沒有使用上的限制。著作一旦「落入」(fall into)公眾領域,該作品即可被任意使用,這是一般的認知。也就是,公眾領域被認為具有一界線的領域,跨過此界線的即屬於公眾,任何人不得設限。但是,哪些著作已跨越此界線,卻常不清楚。這常要看著作是否已過保護年限(台灣為五十年,美國為七十年),而這又跟著作人是否已死亡相關(或是其初次出版時間相關)。這也跟所適用的著作權法為何、該著作的出版時地、以及著作權人當初是否另有權利上的安排等因素有關。這些因素也是每年變動的(「今年剛好滿五十年了!」)。 2014-09-04T16:00:00Z emyleo

10月強檔活動預告

Planet CC -

近幾年影音創作愈發蓬勃,相關的活動也愈來愈普及。然而,製作一部影片,可能會涉及語文著作、音樂著作、攝影著作、美術著作、視聽著作、錄音著作等多元著作的運用,必然會面臨許多著作權或授權的問題。 今年我們特別針對「影音多媒體創作」與「公眾授權(創用CC授權)」的關係進行整理與呈現。我們策劃一系列活動,讓大家藉由有趣多樣的方式,瞭解彼此間的關連與重要性。 最近剛完成「概念短片」的拍攝活動,透過一群對影音創作有熱情的同學們,對創用CC授權推動理念的理解,打造全新的概念影片,從劇情設定、腳本設計,到拍攝執行,一手包辦。三段不同的小故事,呈現創用CC「分享、混搭、再利用」的核心精神,短片彼此各自獨立,卻又相互關連。 2014-09-04T07:20:22Z emyleo

透過開放建築設計改變世界

Planet CC -

在1999年,他們為了解決科索沃的移民問題而在網站上召喚眾人一起提供設計藍圖;2001年,他們轉為關注在非洲撒哈拉以南設立愛滋病流動診所;2004年,他們針對伊朗的自然災後重建;2005年,則是為了卡崔納颶風帶來的災情共同努力。 當他們接獲越來越多的建築請求之後,便決定要將這些徵求計劃公開,利用網路平台讓更多人可以提案、分享想法,且有機會能與不同專業和社群的人合作,也使當地的人可以參與問題解決的流程、陳述他們對於建築的真正需求為何。透過此平台,產生的不只是一個想法,而是成千上萬個能促進所有人生活品質的設計想法。於是,在2006年他們建立了Open Architecture網站,2011年Architecture for Humanity和Open Architecture正式合併改名為Worldchanging。 2014-09-02T06:18:02Z dkoooh

Creative Commons-lisenser og GRAMO

Planet CC -

Creative Commons Norge har i lengre tid forsøkt å finne ut av hva slags hjemmel organisasjonen GRAMO mener at den har for å kreve inn vederlag for innspilt, rettighetsbeskyttet musikk som fra rettighetshaverenes side er gjort tilgjengelig for bruk med en Creative Commons-lisens. Etter flere uker uten å få GRAMO i tale henvendte vi oss til Kulturdepartementet, som 2014-07-15 ga oss følgende svar: Departementet har etter dette lagt til grunn at utøvende kunstnere og fonogramtilvirkere etter omstendighetene kan gi samtykke til fri offentlig fremføring av sine lydopptak, og at Gramo i så fall ikke skal kreve inn vederlag for denne bruken. Om utøvende kunstnere og fonogramtilvirkere derimot ønsker å motta vederlag for bruken av sine lydopptak, kan vederlagskravet bare gjøres gjeldende gjennom Gramo. Bakgrunnen for henvendelen til Kulturdepartementet er at norske kunder av strømmetjenesten Royal Streaming som blant annet strømmer musikk fra Tribe of Noise under en reative Commons-lisens (CC BY-SA 4.0) får krav om å betale GRAMO-avgift for innspilt musikk som strømmes under denne lisensen.

MapWorks Learning combines OER and open data to protect threatened biodiversity

Creativecommons.org -

Mangrove forests have been described by the World Wildlife Fund as one of the world’s most threatened tropical ecosystems. In an effort to protect and raise awareness around this problem, MapWorks Learning launched the first of what they plan to make an annual Mapathon for ecological preservation and learning. The inaugural event engaged schools, universities, and environmental groups around the world to document the health and well being of mangrove populations using the Mapping the Mangroves tool.

The Mapping the Mangroves (MTM) toolkit is a project originally funded by Qatar Foundation International, and is now a keystone project of MapWorks Learning. MTM uses a mapping application built on the open source Ushahidi software platform, relying on crowdsourcing to collect geographic and descriptive data about mangrove forests. The project’s reporting system allows anyone to submit a report about mangrove forests, describing the area’s biodiversity and pairing it with geographic coordinates and other sensor data. The data are then displayed on an interactive map on the project’s homepage, with all reports searchable and explorable by geographic region and other habitat or report traits. The data are freely available for download and licensed under a CC0 Public Domain Dedication, too.

The MTM project is supporting the development of OER curriculum introducing learners to mangrove forest ecosystems, basic species identification, and explaining how they can take part in the monitoring and protection of forests around the world. The toolkit’s learning material is available under a CC BY-NC-ND license on OER Commons.

The 2nd OER Summer Camp on Luxi Island of CC China Mainland

Creativecommons.org -

The following is a guest post by LIUPing, members of the CC China Mainland Affiliate team and the School of Open community. Below is a description of the 2nd CC China Mainland open educational resources (OER) summer camp (30th June to 8th July 2014) for the children of Luxi Island, a remote island off the coast of China.

Why did we have the 2nd OER Summer Camp?

The summer of 2013 was special for the CC China Mainland team, Wenzhou Medical University and Guokr.com. These three parties co-hosted OER summer camp which was successfully initiated on Luxi Island. For Wenzhou Medical University, the summer camp has already been a part of its routine volunteering activities for five consecutive years. But it’s the first time for them to connect such a camp with the CC China Mainland Project. The latter, to their surprise, brought something fresh this time; a real world OER activity in rural China took shape.

The first OER summer camp received great feedback, not only from volunteers of Wenzhou Medical University that participated, but from the officials of Luxi Island, and more importantly, from the students of Luxi Public School.

Can we create some OER courses?

The first successful but not flawless camp greatly encouraged us to hold the second one. We thought there was a lot of room for improvement, especially that more CC-licensed OER should be included. In addition to OER available online, we wondered if we could make some interesting online courses ourselves for the kids within our reach. And based on feedback, “How to make herbarium” was regarded as the most interesting course during the first camp.

“We hope to make a difference,” said volunteers from Wenzhou Medical University. “why not make some courses based on our knowledge as medical students? We believe that would be more interesting and flexible.”

What courses did we create?

All preparations went smoothly by volunteers, days before the launch of the camp. Wenzhou Medical University’s student center, which provides opportunities for students to start small businesses within the campus, happened to have a photography studio. Undoubtedly, it was chosen to be our “OER course studio” for making videos of the courses. About 12 volunteers participated and 16 different courses were recorded, of which 14 were used, including:

1. The introduction of traffic signs (video)

2. Comprehensive water treatment, namely sewage treatment, flood prevention, drainage, water supply and water saving. The course was concentrated on how to identify water quality (video)

3. Interesting Japanese language (video)

6. Interesting history: the introduction of some historical events which had significant impact on China. (video)

7. Presentation skills: How to give a presentation or host an event. How to present yourself in front of people with confidence. (video)

8. Course for senior citizens on the island: including some basic knowledge of labor contract if any of their family members are immigrant workers in other provinces; living knowledge such as why some vegetables can’t be cooked together, etc. (video)

9. Pink ribbon: the course was designed for females on the island by Wenzhou Medical University volunteers. The presenter is a Clinical Medicine Science major student; she introduces relevant knowledge of breast cancer, including how to prevent it from happening. (video)

10. Muscle-bone strengthening exercise: Through proper adjustment in human body and correct method for breath (muscle, bone etc.), the exercise can help to improve blood circulation and the functions of internal organs of the body (heart, spleen, liver, lungs and kidneys). (video)

11. Interesting Oral English: Mr. Percy provides kids with some simple and easy oral English. (video)

12. MOOC from Guokr: How to select good quality fruit. A specially designed course for kids (link)

Feedback from Participants of the 2nd Luxi Summer Camp

Students’ comments on the OER summer camp:

CHEN Xinhao, Grade One:

We had many different courses, and learnt a lot from our teachers. Besides, discipline plays a big role in our classes. I learnt how to be strong, even if being injured, I didn’t cry. Teachers cared us a lot and we can feel the love from their hearts. Maybe next time, we can have more classified courses based on our exiting knowledge. I sincerely hope that they can come again; we really like all these teachers.

CHEN Yanjie, Grade Four:

I enjoyed my stay with teachers, from their daily lives, I learnt how to be strong, independent and insistent on my dreams. Teachers gave us so many supports and encouragement. Same time, I got to know my weak points and believe that I can always do better. I really hope they can come and visit us next summer, by binging knowledge and happiness. I like my teachers.

MIAO Xiaoting, Grade Four:

Though I can’t fully understand the class, I think all classes are great and interesting. Teachers really tried hard to explain us. I like this kind of teaching and will try my best to learn in future. I enjoyed the play time with teachers after class. It’s funny to play games and take photos together. So many unforgettable moments. I hope all of them can come back next summer. I love them! In order to provide us good classed, teachers’ preparation task lasted late at night and got up early in the morning. I hope they can have good rest after back home.

ZHENG Ruize, Grade Six:

One of the important things I learnt from these teachers is always be diligent, humble and hard work. I believe that I can walk out of this island and get to know the world outside. Now I’m on Grade Six, and will be in mid school soon. I think I will work harder in future and let myself become an excellent student with the days to come. I really hope after grow-up, I can back to the island with teacher, to support more kids in this island. I hope all teachers would take good care of themselves. I like them all and look forward to seeing them again with diversified courses.

Volunteers’ comments on OER summer camp:

QIN Xu, age 19, major in Law:

The most impressive thing happened in summer camp is the process of making courses. It’s a very interesting to be a teacher for others. Besides, team work always makes things earlier to proceed and get diversified thoughts on how to do it. Personally, being a teacher in front of so many students in different ages made me overcome the fear in facing a camera, become more confident.

PAN Yixiu, age 19, major in Traditional Chinese Medicine:

After being a volunteer for the summer camp, I understand that when kids made mistakes, the last thing to do is to blame them, but let them know why this is not the right thing to do. Taking a trans-positional consideration always helps in communications. As a teacher, we should encourage, praise them, other than criticize or disappoint them. Only by doing so, they create a new world with more confidence.

LIU Hanzhong, age 19, major in rehabilitation:

This volunteering experience really made me feel that kid’s world is so clean, honest and simple. A fine educational system should concentrate on personality-building, then knowledge-teaching.
