Who owns your tweets? Twitter or you? A fellow member of LinkedIn’s Creative Intensive Network (group) posted the question today.
The implications are tremendous as you often tweet news of brand products, retweet postings, and share urls of established media organizations, professional bloggers, or business professionals who blog it for the buzz, leads, and potential revenue. This 2008 video talks directly to the need for licensing that keeps up with the pace of shared culture.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Creative Commons, as you may know, put the process in place to license, share and collaborate online with each person getting their due on their own terms.
What’s your experience?
- Do you license your micro-blogs, bookmark sites, and blogs?
- Have you ever put the weight of your license to work when attribution was missing — either by oversight or intention?
