While researching Creative Commons and how it differs from Copyright something rather peculiar caught my eye: the copyleft movement. It institutes Copyright ideas but fudges some of the guidelines. Yes, that’s right. The Copyleftists are the pirates of the Copyright world. However, instead of gold, Copyleftists are out there to plunder that information copyright withholds us from finding.
If you’re interested in kinda-sorta putting a leash on your web creations as well as interested in taking steps to protect your work as an online outputting machine, you should really look into Creative Commons. They give out free copyright-licenses like candy on Halloween but not the high barbed wire fences a full Copyright provides. Here’s a quick video to explain everything I can’t.
If you’re against clicking my links here’s a wee explanation: with Creative Commons you have the ability to design which rights are reserved and which rights are waived for the sake of free sharing everywhere. Here’s their website for more information.
