What The Heck Is Creative Commons Anyway? Just FREE ADVERTISING, That's All...WOW

by rawlands cc 
Lately, we became 'painfully' aware of several folks, some of them, our very best friends that were very confused about CREATIVE COMMONS. They were wondering 'bout it's uses and if putting any of their [and Steve's, by the way] very talented and hard-earned music, artwork, photos etc., up on BARTLETT'S ON BASS give their Copyright 'away'?
Well, I know 'Creative Commons is new for some people....
So, I put up the statement at the top of our creative commons sites...so, everyone can plainly see..."Portions of this work contain the intellectual property of third party authors and contributors. As such, third party authors and contributors retain all copyrights in the individual works and reserve all rights not specifically granted herein"
'COPYRIGHTED' material is NEVER giving away... of course not, your copyright is always safe!....This might help, ..Here's a link of some well known online business's that you know, that ARE involved: Read and link HERE    [BIG Hint: GOOGLE, FLICKR, WIKIPEDIA etc. and even millions more]
This is what Creative Commons is...."Our tools give everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to keep their copyright while allowing certain uses of their work — a “some rights reserved” approach to copyright" Link below:

CREATIVE COMMONS: "Our mission
Creative Commons develops, supports, and stewards legal and technical infrastructure that maximizes digital creativity, sharing, and innovation.

Our vision

Our vision is nothing less than realizing the full potential of the Internet — universal access to research and education, full participation in culture — to drive a new era of development, growth, and productivity." Link HERE
So, BARTLETT'S ON BASS uses this license: 
"Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs
CC BY-NC-ND

This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.", Link above, under Our Vision.

And more..' FREE ADVERTISING' below. 'Whew', I'm all worn out by all this legal talk....BUT, don't worry, guys. SMILE, Jan

"This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, allowing redistribution. This license is often called the “free advertising” license because it allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially." link HERE

Here's a video from cc Qatar on YOUTUBE, about CREATIVE COMMONS. It's called MEET CREATIVE COMMONS. This is what the page says: Published on Mar 28, 2012
CC Qatar Releases New Video on How Creative Commons Works

In as many ways we can use Creative Commons to share, learn, and communicate with like-minded people around the globe, we can explain what it is that Creative Commons does. There are countless blogs, pictures, lectures, and songs on the benefits of CC. This time around, however, we've worked with the highly creative animators of WikiKiwis to produce an informative and entertaining animation explaining why and how Creative Commons achieves what it does best; promote sharing and creative content generation while respecting intellectual property rights.
The animation [comically] depicts creative people as they innovate with arts, science, literature, and music only to be hindered by the current strict regulations on copyrights. These regulations often do well with regards to protecting intellectual property in the physical, but their outdated restrictions compromises our ability as a global network of creative content creators to share and modify work freely and openly. Enter Creative Commons: the protagonist of the story that helps us all share, mix and remix -- while respecting copyrights! By providing content licenses which are primarily designed to allow for creative works to be used, modified, and shared, Creative Commons paves the way for a global community of inspired and inspirational content creators and users that can-in turn-revolutionize the way we work together through the Internet.
Check our video and feel free to use it as you want -- keep it moving forward!
