Hello, this week I am the translator of my work group. This week has been difficult because we had to done two task instead of one as always, and for that we know a lot of new concepts now and like good classmates we want to share with you our new knowledge.
Here you can see five important concepts:
CREATIVE COMMONS LICENSES: is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, Hal Abelson and Eric Eldred with the support of Center for the Public Domain.
It is used by people who wants get some information, pictures and material in general and this organization can offer all this. Creative commons licenses permit people to share, download, use and edit a lot of contents, and this people don´t have to search information in other site because they know that this information is absolutely legal and reliable, because also in other pages we have to ask permission to get this content and in Creative Commons, we already know that this permission is allowed.
This organization is recognized around the entire world because all the contents they have is based in legal rules and to the people who use it this is useful.
Also if you need some information which isn’t in creative commons you must to be in contact with the author of this information or picture and that way you will get the permission.
You can find different types of creative commons licenses as for example:
Attribution: You can use it commercially and also you can create new versions of it.
Share Alike: You can use it commercially but you need a license to create a new version of it by a share alike license.
No derivatives: You can use it commercially but you cannot use it in a new version.
Non-commercial: You cannot use it commercially and to create a new version you need that it was under any non-commercial license.
Non-Commercial Share Alike: You cannot use it commercially and to create a new version it must be non-commercial but it can be under any non- commercial license.
Non–commercial No Derivatives: you cannot use it commercially and neither you can use it in a new version.
PRESENTATION: Is the process of presenting or showing something important for us as a topic, to an audience. The majority of times a presentation is a demonstration of our knowledge and we use it to talk to the public about something that we know so much. When we do a presentation we want to transmit something to our public and we make a lecture, maybe a speech and that way we try to inform and persuade the audience.
PUBLIC DOMAIN: It means that if there are some materials inside of public domain, these materials can be used by everyone who wants use it without any restriction. We can use it because the author of this material has died and he needn´t it anymore or because he don’t want to control his material.
COPYRIGHT: Is an important and basic law that gives us some rights over the things that we have created like for example paintings, books, movies, photos, music, videos…
It could be one of the most important laws for the humanity, because thanks to it nobody can use our materials like this material was his and without the permission of the author.
Also copyright laws depend of the country. But one thing is in all countries, this thing is that if someone catches something that it´s yours you will can report him or her and then ask to the judge for a compensation.
When the author of the material has died, we have to wait fifty years and then this material will be public domain and you can use it without permission but if the author is alive you need his permission.
REFERENCES: Is a data type that refers to an object elsewhere that we have used to do a task for example.
Generally a reference is a value that enables a program to directly access the particular page data.
In out university tasks we need to show all the references at the end of the work, because that way the teacher can see where we have looked the information and if this internet site is reliable.
Also we can find references to our tasks in books like an encyclopedia.
