The second Wimba session was very informative. Professor Bustillos gave an overview of the creative commons license of images audio and video. Since the 70’s everything people create in a fixed form is protected by copyright. The advent of the Internet and new media forced those rights to be reconsidered, hence the invention of the creative commons. These licenses give people the freedom to add more detail usage right to content they create. I think the “Share Alike” license is a direct reflection on how the Internet has changed our culture. The “Share Alike” license promotes people to continue to add to the collective intelligence of an affinity group by constantly adding and sharing assets for the community to use.
