New Creative Commons Compatibility wizards released… well almost

JuneHedges24 June 2011

JISC Legal and the OER IPR Support Project today announced the release of new wizards that have been developed “to help people understand the range of Creative Commons licences which are compatible with each other when they are blending Creative Commons licensed resources to create open educational resources or any other resources”.
There seem to be some teething issues, but the tools should soon be available here: http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/creativecommons/

Further information about the OER IPR Support Project, including access to their suite of existing tools, is on the project site: http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/

OER, IPR and Licensing Workshop

ManYang26 November 2010

OER IPR Support LogoThree members of the project team attended the “Before You Start: OER, IPR and Licensing Workshop” which was held at UCL on 24th November.

Led by two members of the OER IPR Support Project Team, the workshop provided an overview of copyright and other IPR issues. It also covered the different types of Creative Commons licences, the obligations to JISC and how we can embed good IPR practice into existing processes.

I found the workshop very helpful. For those who couldn’t attend, here is the link to OER IPR Support where more information and resources can be obtained:
