Authors list

The Internet is a space for sharing and exchanging. But when and how can you use material found on the Internet? Can you use copyrighted music when creating a video/presentation? Can you use a nice picture found on a Flickr album on the web without a second thought? If you are at a loss about copyright issues or have trouble understanding complicated law statements related to terms and conditions of use of certain materials, take a look at this Childnet International website.

And what happens when you create your own material? Would you like to share it with fellow colleagues but protect it from any misuse? Take a look at Creative Commons, which can help you answer these questions. It is a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of materials and resources through free legal tools. Learn more about the different licenses and what they mean. On their website, they have a simple tool that will help you choose the type of license you need. Once you have picked the one you need, you can download it in high quality and different formats.
