Creative Commons Licenses and Attribution: How To Embed Them Inside Your Digital Content

Robin Good: JISC provides a very well documented guide to the use of Creative Commons licences (also referred to as CC licences) which can greatly facilitate the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, the modification of the original owner’s creative work without needing to get permission each time from the original rights holder.


In addition to this the correct use and embedding of CC license may greatly help in the effort to make original sources more transparent to the final reader, in many context, including news and content curation efforts of many kinds.


Creative Commons licences can be embedded into a variety of resources, such as PowerPoint, images, Word docs, elearning resources, podcasts and other audio visual resources.


While specifically prepared for UK public sector organizations this document can be quite useful for anyone interested in the use of CC licenses to distribute digital content online.


Key Benefits of embedding CC licences for content curation and attribution:

It can help the user see that the resource is an ‘open’ resource and licensed under a specific CC licence terms
  It can help reduce the future ‘orphan works’ (works for which the rights holders are unknown or cannot be traced), and assist in creation of appropriate attribution, citation and potential negotiation for further permissions. By embedding the selected CC licence to the licence details even if the resource gets detached from its metadata. This is particularly the case if the resource is found via a search engine instead of the original website platform which might host specific copyright restrictions.

5 Best Practices Every Content Curator Should Follow

I selected this piece by Steve Rosenbaum for Mashable because there are some excellent tips to make you a trusted source, build a loyal following and add value to the community.


I don’t know about you but everytime I read a post about curation, I see something different, this one is from someone who knows what he’s talking about.


Here are some highlights:


Be part of the content ecosystem


**What a curator should do is embrace content both as a marketer and an organizer


Follow a schedule


**No matter what and how much you post, 2 new links a day and one big post per week, that’s a schedule


**Be consistent and post at the same time everyday so your readers will know when to expect new content


**consistency and regularity brings new users and helps you build a loyal fan base


Embrace multi platforms


**Put your work where your audience is, today you have to go to them (more about this in the article)


Engage and Participate


**Select only the best content – read everything before you hit the send button – you’ll build trust by helping your readers find great content and information


**This is a great way to build relationships with bloggers and other curators (more on this in the article)


Share, Don’t Steal


**Last but definitely not least, you must acknowledge the source, there are no exceptions


**When people choose to listen to you, it’s because you’ve proven to separate the signal from the noise
