2. Original music, original written work, photographs.

3. As soon as it is created.

4. CC allows copyright owners to assign the level of protection

for their work.

5. When a camera clicks on a photoshoot thereby creating a


6. Crediting an author is when someone writes that this short

quote is part of a larger novel. Getting permission includes a

letter requesting permission to use copy righted work. This

letter should be very specific as what is being requested to be

used and how it will be used.

7. 3 rights: right to make copies, create a new work based on

the original, distribute copies and perform or display the work.

and their colleagues.

also help people collaborate on projects.

chatty, conversationalist manner in as many words as you like. Micro-blogging is a shorter version of blogging; it is a

more concise, focused version.

9. Visitors to my blog may object to the product or service being advertised.

10. An e‐portfolio is another term for my home page.  This has links to my blog, micro‐blog and my other online information.
