Much of the open education community runs on Creative Commons licenses, and those licenses themselves are based on copyright law.  This episode is a basic primer about copyrights.  I cover seven questions:

  3. How are copyrights different than patents?
  4. How are copyrights different than trademarks?
  5. What can you copyright?
  6. How does something copyrighted get in the public domain?
  7. What exemptions are there to copyright law?
