__”Sometimes a Paid-For License Is Less Expensive Than a Free License. Using Creative Commons material is attractive because use is free and requires no direct permission from the licensor. But sometimes “free” results in substantial expense. Even though Kappa Map prevailed in the copyright infringement lawsuit, the company’s use of the Swain’s Lock photo resulted in fourteen months of litigation.” __

Proof that Using CC Material Is Not Risk-Free

guidethroughthelegaljungleblog.com  [Joy Butler.  an attorney, author]
One might think that using properly licensed material would guarantee insulation from a copyright infringement lawsuit. Apparently not. At least not for Kappa Map Group’s recent use of material per a Creative Commons license.

Photographer Sues Kappa Map Group on Creative Commons Technicalities

As permitted by the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, Kappa Map used the Swain’s Lock photograph without notifying the photographer and without specifically asking him for permission. When the photographer learned that his photo adorned the front cover of the Montgomery Co., Maryland Street Atlas, he filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Kappa Map.

Lessons To Be Learned by Licensors and Licensees

Creative Commons Materials Are Not Risk-Free. While I view being sued by a Creative License licensor as a rarity, the other risks associated with Creative License materials are much more likely to emerge.  _ http://www.guidethroughthelegaljungleblog.com/2012/03/using-creative-commons-materials.html _

Should You Use Creative Commons Materials?

Use of Creative Commons materials is not risk free. The Creative Commons License waives only copyright restrictions. There may be other legal issues to consider before using the Creative Commons materials. These considerations include right of publicity, right of privacy and defamation concerns.

Creative Commons licenses often come with no representations, warranties, or indemnifications. Those are the guaranties from the rights owner that it is authorized to give you permission to use the material and that the material has no permissions problems. Without representations, warranties, and indemnification, you are taking the Creative Commons material as is and essentially using it at your own risk.

Less Risky Methods

Less risky methods I recommend for minimizing costs while expanding your universe of available materials include licensing works from smaller stock houses and from local, independent and upcoming artists.

Yesterday, Creative Commons joined the U.S. Department of Education (ED) for a series of important announcements that will advance OER in grades PreK-12 across the United States. ED announced the launch of its #GoOpen campaign to encourage states, school districts and educators to use Open Educational Resources (OER). OER, made “open” by CC licenses, will benefit schools in a number of ways including: increasing equity, keeping content relevant and high quality, empowering teachers, and saving districts money.

Department of Education Announces Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

On October 29, 2015 the Department announced that it is proposing a new regulation that would require all copyrightable intellectual property created with Department grant funds to have an open license.

The announcements were made at an Open Education Symposium hosted by the Department and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy for state and district superintendents and other educators from across the country committed to adopting openly licensed educational materials.

“By requiring an open license, we will ensure that high-quality resources created through our public funds are shared with the public, thereby ensuring equal access for all teachers and students regardless of their location or background,” said John King, senior advisor delegated the duty of the Deputy Secretary of Education. “We are excited to join other federal agencies leading on this work to ensure that we are part of the solution to helping classrooms transition to next generation materials.”

The Department will be receiving comments on this proposed policy at http://www.regulations.gov.

__“While the immediate “text to text” comparisons may be favorable for OER, Casey Green notes that “looming issues for the OER movement are [the absence of infrastructure to support OER – the editors, fact-checkers, instructional designers and others who add value,] the review process, ancillaries, and updates that many faculty have come to expect, even if the cost of these resources and services are paid by students when they purchase commercial titles.” __ http://chronicle.com/blogs/wiredcampus/campus-tech-leaders-report-more-support-for-free-educational-materials/57551

Campus Tech Leaders Report More Support for Free Educational Materials

chronicle.com

College technology leaders appear more optimistic these days about open-source textbooks and open educational resources — teaching and learning materials that can be used at no cost.

According to the latest Campus Computing Survey of top technology officers at colleges, released on Thursday, 81 percent believe that open educational resources will be an important source for instructional material in the next five years. And 38 percent report that their institutions encourage faculty members to use open-resource content, compared with 33 percent in 2014.

The Algorithmic Future of Education

The Algorithmic Future of Education

hackeducation.com

Audrey Watters   on 22 Oct 2015

Today I want to talk about three of these trends – “themes” is perhaps the more accurate word: austerity, automation, and algorithms.

I have the phrase “future of education” in the title to this talk, but I don’t want to imply that either austerity or automation or algorithms are pre-ordained. There is no inevitability to the future of education, to any of this – there is no inevitability to what school or technology will look like; there is no inevitability to our disinvestment in public education. These are deeply political issues – issues of labor, information, infrastructure, publicness, power. We can (we must) actively work to mold this future, to engage in public and political dialogue and not simply hand over the future to industry.

Years ago I learned never to ask a customer, “Do you like this?”  I did that once in a focus group where I asked teachers to tell me what they thought about a cover design for a book.  The book was for the Child Development class and the photo on the cover was a little boy who peeked out from a giant red umbrella.  Cute, right?  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  The participants told me about their likes (and heavy dislikes) of particular colors, typefaces, and photos.  I heard about how some thought the boy could do serious injury to himself or others with the umbrella.  One even pointed out that it could be acid rain pouring down on that umbrella (really).  Guess what I learned?  Never to ask that question again!  Only when I switched the conversation to one of behavior did I start to learn something about how my customer would interact with this cover.

Why The Google Books Ruling Is Good For Publishers

The Second Circuit court has ruled in favor of Google in Authors Guild’s case against Google Books

If you search for a title or a subject in Google Books, what you’re given isn’t the full-text of a book. Instead, Google searches the contents of the thirty million books it’s digitized since 2002 and presents you with a list of book snippets and book titles that include your search terms. This is immensely helpful to researchers and, the argument in favor of Google Books goes, potentially beneficial to publishers–and, by default, to authors.

Academic freedom, textbook affordability, #OER (and Pearson in the news again): Look for textbook affordability to heat up big-time this spring in advance of Fall 2015 class startups. Prices continue to rise as the commercial textbook business model fragments.

Math professor's textbook choice adds up to controversy at Cal State F

Math professor’s textbook choice adds up to controversy at Cal State Fullerton

latimes.com

Associate professor Alain Bourget said it was the right decision to allow his students to ditch the textbook long-used in a Cal State Fullerton math class for a cheaper one he thought was more relevant.

But that decision has now divided the math department and stirred a debate over academic freedom, the propriety of instructors using their personal textbooks and who ultimately controls the design of courses.

 

  1. Peter Janzow

    Pearson has nothing to do with this dispute. They are quoted but only because they provided information about other schools adopting the book in question.

    Collateral damage.

  • Don Gorges

    __Am looking for the issue of Academic Freedom to heat up even more than the pressure to adopt free OER _ “Faculty members have the “freedom to teach,” which includes picking course materials, “without having their decisions subject to the veto of a department chair, dean, or other administrative officer,” and “that faculty members “avoid any exploitation” of students.” according to the American Association of University Professors.” _ see original article _ http://www.ocregister.com/articles/bourget-688288-math-book.html

Don, I think you are most likely correct. The high cost of textbooks seems to be driving faculty to look for alternatives, and altering how acceptable committee adoptions might therefore be.

Don Gorges

__Nicole Allen, director of open education at SPARC, keeps Faculty focused on ‘The high cost of textbooks’. _”Ten years ago long-term departmental adoptions were considered good for affordability since it allows a strong local used-book market to develop. Now it can work against students by perpetuating the traditional publishing industry’s stranglehold on the market, which keeps new innovations like OER out.” _ see related article _ https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/10/26/dispute-required-math-textbook-escalates-broader-debate-about-costs-and-academic
