True cost of science publishing - 2 views

  •  
    This is an interesting article about the cost of formal publishing verses open access publishing. Although there seems to be a lot of secrecy around the issue, the research shows that the total cost for open access publishing is a lot less than formal publishing. That appears to bring the perception that the open access works are not as good as those published in formal journals. Despite this factor there is growing encouragement to authors to publish their work in open access sources, but traditional models remain very popular. A large percentage of these journals actually allow people to publish online, although some do ask for a time delay. Despite that, many authors do not proceed to publish online after they have gone through the formal process although some authors are obliged to do so by their institution. It could be a good test to see why these authors do not take the step to publish online. Reasons could range from apathy, to not enough knowledge of the process, to a need not to share the information with everyone. Economically, there is also a concern that open access sources will become more expensive as more authors begin publishing in this way.

    What copyright considerations effect MOOC?
    Are technology transfer issues at stake?

    Both discussed very nicely in this paper?
  •  
    The issue of copyright has always been a contentious issue long before the introduction of MOOCs. The debate, now that we have MOOCs in our midst will continue as we try to find a common ground. The issue on the table is fair play.
  •  
    The article addresses the copyright challenges in a MOOC environment. Very useful reading as it discusses the IPR issues we generally do not think of.

In Twist, Publishers Appeal Their 'Win' in GSU Copyright Case - 0 views

  •  
    In a surprise move, the publisher plaintiffs in the closely-watched Georgia State University copyright case have asked for a full (en banc) hearing by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, despite the fact that a three-judge panel handed them a victory last month when it unanimously reversed a 2012 district court verdict against them.

Stop Hating Online: "Consequences" TV Ad - 6 views

  •  
    The Canadian Government promoting how sharing private content of someone is illegal. Having the internet and our social media tools, it is so easy to share and connect with people. It is great in many ways, like education, social life, work etc. but when it comes to personal life, maybe it is not as great. People like to share because it is easy and fast, there are no physical restrictions. There are consequences but because there are too many people doing it, it is hard to target everyone. With this digital age coming so quickly, maybe rules, regulations, and education are still trying to catch up. If I have not taken this course, I would not have known that sharing a screenshot on Whatsapp with friends is actually illegal. The point is when everyone is doing it now, and we were not deeply educated on this topic beforehand, how is this going to stop? When sharing screenshots has became a trend, how is it possible to stop?

    I think this video does an excellent job of not victim-blaming, or casting any moral judgement. I think it's easy to say "don't take pictures", etc., but approaching it as a strictly legal matter may be a better route to take.
    Speaking of the general open access movement, I think some valuable lessons could be taken from this for raising awareness about appropriate uses of open access information. It reminds me of the Disney compilation copyright video we watched at the beginning of the course - using some very literal imagery to get a point across, and explaining what the law is, not what people are doing with it.

    I think this PSA does a really good job of communicating a 'touchy' subject in a tasteful manner. The message is simple and very relatable for adolescents. Cyberbullying is a tremendous issue among youth in Canada and I am really glad to see the government taking preventative initiatives.

When MOOC Profs Move - 7 views

  •  
    Mooc is a sign and pioneer of open knowledge,but since it was born, it has had a bunch of problems. MOOC appeal to open access and open intellectual property, however, MOOC even has problem with their teacher who produce course in MOOC. Open is a good but ideal concept, but society needs time to change the logic and be more selfless to be open.

    Interesting discussion.

    Algo bastante interesante y contradictorio.
  •  
    La política de propiedad intelectual de Harvard contiene un lenguaje, animando a difundir su trabajo "en maneras que son significativas en el interés público." Si de la universidad "La participación en la creación y desarrollo de materiales con derechos de autor es más que incidental", sin embargo, Harvard debe compartir los derechos.

    If the University invested money in the project , they may feel they have aright to the MOOCs. Are MOOC, Profs and academics are very quick to use IP to avoid sharing their Knowledge.

Balance between open access and protection of intellectual property - 1 views

  •  
    With the changes in technology, it is harder and harder to protect author's intellectual property. However, we can try to achieve a balance between open access and intellectual property.

Is Intellectual property still existing today - 0 views

  •  
    In this society crowded with information, people can freely access to any kind of information. Intellectual property seems to unimportant. Many people even don't aware that they steal intellectual property from others. Is this a definite trend or do we have ways to protect authors?

Support Guides | Copyright @ UBC - 2 views

  •  
    If you're taking this course out of Canada, the Copyright @ UBC website has a lot of really good information available to you. Guides specifically relevant to this course include the Creative Commons Guide (where you can find information about using CC licensed work, applying CC licenses to your own work, and several lists of websites where you can find CC licensed work) and the Public Domain Guide (where you can find information about how to determine if something is in the public domain in Canada). The entire site is CC BY-SA (except where otherwise indicated) though, so the entire thing is a resource for copyright questions in Canada.

Scanner tags, comic book piracy and participatory culture - 0 views

  •  
    This essay takes a look at comic book scanners and why they do what they do -- namely, risking legal repercussions for the violation of IP laws without monetary reward. It's an interesting look at the participatory culture aspect of fandoms in the digital age.

    Chirospasm22 thank you for posting, I had never heard of comic book piracy until now!

What is Intellectual Property? - 6 views

    I have found all information needed about IP at this website.

    Yes, a very comprehensive resource on Intellectual property. Thanks for sharing.
    However, I always check to see when a website was last updated (often indicated at the bottom of a page). WIPO does have this here, but on searching the website under 2014, there updates as recent as October 2014.
  •  
    Agreed that this is a very useful site for intellectual property rights. However a word of caution - there are also differences in the way these rights are dealt with in individual countries, due to those county's laws.
  •  
    This site is very helpful in terms of resources, such as definitions of terms and seminars for learning how to apply IP
  •  
    Thanks for sharing this information, it increases the understanding about Intellectual Property.

Toronto at night - 0 views

  •  
    Photo courtesy of Intercontinental Toronto Yorkville. There is not much restriction in this photo. You can copy or save the photo as you wish.

    I love to take pictures and during my recent trip to Canada, Toronto particularly, I was actually hoping that I could snap the beauty of this city at night looking at the Toronto Island Park, just the way it's supposed to be at this picture. But the chance was just elusive. It suddenly rained when I was at the park until I get back to the Harbor square.

    I am documenting all my travels abroad and planning blogging them. I might use this photo should I blog all my travels abroad.

    Very nice photo Shirley!

Landowner Copyrights "Art" on His Land to Prevent Pipeline - 3 views

I feel like copyright terms are way too long in general, but I have to say that I get a kick out of someone using them like this.
