Our initial aim is to create a pro-sharing equivalent for filmmakers to the anti-piracy notices and videos seen on traditional video content. We see it as a complement to the Creative Commons-licenses."
    Copyright Statement 
    A line of text stating the author(s), date & copyright
    • can be added to the bumper or go on a separate slide
