Great Post On Copyright, From Some Guy. Somewhere.

ProBlogger has a wonderful post on copyright basics for content producers.  Here are the three points I stole from it:

  • Only use content that’s identified explicitly as being available for reuse under the creative commons or open content licenses.
  • Always include a linked citation alongside the content I reference or reuse, identifying the creator and the URL of the original work.
  • Contact the creator to let them know I’m reusing their content and appreciate their making it available.

If you want to read the rest, click the link.  If I stole more I’d get in trouble — those Australians are pretty touchy, and they’ve got sharks. And jellyfish.  And alligators.
