Dr. © or How I stopped worrying and love fair-use licenses

A session at Codebits 2010

Friday 12th November, 2010

5:00pm to 6:00pm (LMT)

Every day you see talented, creative, young artists victim of restrictive copyright licenses. People are fascinated by the power that the Web gives you to "put your work out there", but the chance of having their work stolen by others makes them over-possessive of their very own art.

You can easily create your own online gallery to post your photos and have a lot more eyeballs on your work than on a respected and well-known art gallery IRL.

But there's a catch. People can steal your work. The nature of the web tells us that all which reaches the browser can and will be snatched. Even if only by web crawlers like Google's.

So, how do you, a spectacularly creative mind can avoid your work being abused by disrespectful people?

We'll go through some of the common strategies employed and why we can use alternatives that make your work more professional and undamaged by needless branding.
