How did it go and great finds[edit]

Looks lovely. How did it go? Were there any finds for the 'great finds' section? SJ+ 08:05, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

It was a good start and went well enough with a small group. We want to run more. The main area for improvement is that we need better learning materials and methods to explain open licensing options and how to attribute. I've added the best find - a photo of a cardboard chair that a participant found on flickr and which was then uploaded to commons by privatemusings. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 03:47, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Copyright licenses in practice[edit]

I have a good exercise of a real copyright nightmare that could probably use some explaining for the average user. Copyright is confusing enough for the average person, but what do you make of Xorg's License and Xorg's Document License? I have been wanting to use it for years but the licensing is too confusing for me to grasp. -- darklama  18:04, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm not familiar with this license - I took a quick look and was overwhelmed - low usability! See also Talk:University of Canberra/Things that don't work#Copyleft. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 03:44, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
