I went a little out of order because I am waiting for permission to get on the wiki. While I wait I thought I will go ahead and read about creative commons. I have noticed the C on papers and things but to be honest I have never noticed the cc. I like the video where it compared it to a red light and green light I thought that was a easy to follow comparison. I remember there was a time when songs were first put online and people were downloading them illegally from sites like limewire???? I always thought that was not right. If someone does not want you to copy there work I think it should be respected. However, after reading this I realize that even sometimes photographs, and other things we may not think is a big deal may have a copyright on it. I am glad that there is a cc and people are willing to share what they have created. I am not a very creative person myself. However, if there are things out there then it is a good resource for me to go find it and use it. I am happy that the internet has so much out there. However, we need to teach our children how to properly use it and when to respect others work.
