Thank you Ava for not only suffering through the entire video, but somehow still managing to find a kind word to say about it :)
You’re right though, there does seem to have been a sudden springing of Creative Commons licenses out there but surprisingly there’s very little information on what exactly they mean or how you go about using them.
I’ve considered using a Creative Commons license myself before, but I just wasn’t very comfortable with the whole thing because I never really knew what rights I was giving away and which ones I was keeping. Honestly, even the CreativeCommons.org website seemed a bit overly cryptic and confusing for my simple little brain to process. Fortunately, when you add a few puppies and snappy graphics in a TV like video setting, my tiny reptilian brain falls back into its happy little stupor and I feel smart again (yay!)
As far as the adorable sassy dog at the end of the video (for those of you who haven’t managed to stay awake through the entire thing, you’re missing out!), I’ve been trying to get her to guest post here but apparently she’s holding out for a better offer. . .

I tend to think the question isn’t “have you ever thought of using Creative Commons?” it’s “have you ever thought about how copyright is ruining culture?” The documentary RIP: A Remix Manifesto is an excellent explanation of just how destructive copyright is and you can watch it here: http://www.hulu.com/watch/88782/rip-a-remix-manifesto
Thank you for doing all of this research and generously sharing it!
Thanks Ronna for not only watching the video, but for also having something nice to say about it afterwards :) I really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with us!
It’s as if you read my mind. I’ve noticed a sudden springing up of Creative Commons on a handful of websites and was curious about it. Just not curious enough to start my researching – ahem. Thanks for taking care of that with this post and narrating it too. Nice touch. But fair warning: I might have to adopt that dangerously-adorable puppy featured at the end. What pedigree has visible thought bubbles filled with clever, sassy observations? Want.
