Today when I uploaded a new screencast to YouTube, I noticed a new menu option for YouTube video sharers: Creative Commons BY (attribution-only) licensing!

YouTube Creative Commons Licensing

This is great news, since it will open the door to more opportunities for legal remixing of YouTube video content and more chances to play with media!

If you are not familiar with Creative Commons and why it’s so important to teachers and students in schools, check out one or more of the videos on the Creative Commons website. My favorite is still “Get Creative,” from 2002. Also be sure to check out my new “Copyright” page on “Playing with Media,” including a clever mnemonic to remember copyright and fair use guidelines relating to media sharing and fair use: “Harry Potter Can Fly!”

H = Homegrown
P = Public Domain
C = Creative Commons
F = Fair Use

Harry Potter Can Fly!
