|Tina Piper Creative Commons Brown Bag
Tina Piper, the co-Director of Creative Commons Canada, gave an overview of the history of copyright and the value of Creative Commons yesterday. Organized by Duncan McHugh, the session was part of the ongoing Land and Food Systems Learning Centre Brown Bag Lunch series.
We were grateful to have Tina start the discussion on the confusing issue of copyright. In addition to giving a good overview of copyright principles in general, her coverage of the Canadian nuances of copyright was particularly welcome.
Her talk engaged the audience and elicited the types questions that have no clear cut answers. :) It seems clear that this type of discussion needs to take place on campus more often.
