Test what you’ve learned by explaining CC to your friends.
You’ve had some time to explore Creative Commons licensing and see what it’s all about. Now for the real test: pick one lucky friend, family member or colleague and try explaining CC licenses to them. Think about how that particular person might relate as a creator or user of a work. Does she listen to a ton of music? Is he an avid creator of LOLcats? What key takeaways can you hit on to get them excited to explore CC on their own?
- What questions did your friend ask that you couldn’t answer?
- Did your friend raise any interesting points? Pros and cons?
- Did your friend get it? Do you get it?
