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 | Scoop.it
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

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 Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry

Critical Aspects of Content Curation In The Newsroom: Link and Attribution Are Essential - Steve Buttry | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Steve Buttry, who has already written several articles on content curation (see the end of his original article), just published this in-depth essay celebrating the launch of a new curation team at Digital First Media and pointing to many of the critical factors neeeded for a content / news curator to be effective.


He covers a lot ground while giving a particular emphasis to the importance of linking and attribution. He writes: "Where you can’t learn much about the source of content you’re curating, consider crowdsourcing the question: Note the name and organization, tell readers what you’ve found and that you’re continuing research and ask them what they know about the source.


Where the source of online content is unclear, you should be clear about what you know and where you found the material."


and...


"Sometimes the name of a person or organization is not sufficient attribution.


If the person or organization is not well-known, do a little research (Google will provide quick answers in many cases; sometimes an “about us” page will help).


Especially in political content, you want to note whether you are linking to partisan sources. A liberal or conservative think tank or political action committee is an entirely different kind of source from a professional media outlet or an independent fact-checking site."


Steve Buttry also includes some valuable key guidelines on "how to add value" when curating content and suggests several types of curation approaches that can be used in the newsroom.


Good advice on curation and practical tips. 8/10

Hi Robin,
in this period I am busy, and I have no time to discover news and curate my topic.
Thank you so much for your great curation!
