Research Assignment for Week 7: Creative Commons

Along with your reading for next Monday (Chapter 5, pp. 204 -220), visit the Creative Commons website, read some of the case studies and answer the following questions in a blog post:

  • How does the Creative Commons project alter the way we understand ownership and copyright?
  • How does this project affect the subject(s) of a work?
  • How would a Creative Commons license have altered the works in our textbook reading (Gone with the Wind, the work of Sherrie Levine and Michael Mandiberg)?
  • Does the Creative Commons project afford any protection to the right of publicity (the Bela Lugosi case)?
