Technology and copyright
Technology is obsoleting copyright law. Encourages people to use Creative Commons for all their work.
Â» bonus tip: When publishing with Creative Commons, use the attribution noncommercial license, which means that any non-profit can republish your content, as long as they credit you as the original author (or photographer). But businesses wonâ€™t be allowed to take your content and make money with it.
Promote ownership of your brand
Let people remix your content. Give them creative assets to work with.
Let go of control. Donâ€™t make the mistake the music industry made â€” trying to loc down their content, and alienating their fans.
If it didnâ€™t happen on the Internet, it didnâ€™t happen.
