About the Program:

Creative Commons licenses and other free or low-cost options for sourcing content provide diverse and affordable repositories for all kinds of creative material, but taking advantage of such licenses is not risk-free.  Understanding the terms and scope of the licenses themselves (including potentially tricky issues like attribution) and the potential pitfalls in using Creative Commons materials is critical to managing your exposure.  Join us for a panel discussion of the basics of Creative Commons and other open-source licenses, practical uses for these licenses in business, and the legal risks and challenges involved in vetting content and staying within the bounds of the licenses.
