Curation Is Not About Ownership: It's About Change

Robin Good's insight:

"Curation is not about ownership. It’s not about proprietary rights to whatever environment or resource or experience you create. 

The job of a curator, Paolo Antonelli reminds me, is not to take and possess but to show and educate. 

The job of a curator is to make ideas accessible to as many people as possible.

Because creativity is about more than copyrights and patents. It’s about inspiring people to make something, be something, think something, do something – to change themselves so that we just might change the world."

Copyright, Ethics & Fair Use in Content Curation: Best Practices and Real-World Examples

Copyright, Ethics & Fair Use  in Content Curation: Best Practices and Real-World Examples | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

Pawan Deshpande of Curata has published an excellent piece on "fair use", "copyright" and "ethics" as they relate to content curation.

He not only provides some valuable basic information, but it goes the extra mile by re-sharing 12 best practices originally published by Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab while adding his own commentary and advice, and his own 7 real-world web examples highlighting mostly "what is best not to do" when it comes to republishing, citing and crediting other people work.

Recommended. Lots of useful information. 8/10

with the increase in mash-up content, the issues of IP such as this would need our attention and commonsense.

Mary Dawson's curator insight, June 21, 2013 11:39 AM

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the example does not come out of this too well!
