Building the Commons: Integrating Creative Commons in Your Application
Founded in 2001, Creative Commons is a non-profit dedicated to two purposes: developing a middle ground, "some rights reserved" approach to copyright, and lowering the transaction cost associated with the reuse of creative works.
Many of our efforts in the latter area surround the use of metadata: enabling software to understand license information so consumers can find the content they want which allows the uses they want.
This talk will provide an overview of Creative Commons metadata strategy along with an overview of how application and web developers can take advantage of these technologies to "CC enable" their application. Topics covered included RDFa, XMP, the partner API, the CC web services and the ccHost "sampling pool" API.
Yes, there will be code.
