Audience: first year Creative Industries students at Queensland University of Technology
Presenter: Elliott Bledsoe, Project Officer, Creative Commons Australia and Research Assistant, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation
This lecture covers “All rights reserved” copyright and the resulting permissions culture. It examines the affects of an environment where to use any of the culture around you you have to ask permission through 3 case studies. It then explores Creative Commons licensing as an alternative rights management approach and details 2 case studies to illustrate ways it has been adopted.
It’s World IP day this week and how better to celebrate than coming along to a free half day seminar on Maximising Creative Value and IP?
It’s being run by QUT’s Creative Industries Faculty, and goes from 1:45pm this Wednesday (not strictly World IP day, but close enough) at QUT’s Kelvin Grove campus, here in Brisbane.
It looks like an interesting program, with lots of discussion of how to utilise new technologies to create business and innovation models for the creative industries. Jessica Coates of CCau will be presenting, along with:
* Anna Rooke, CEO, Creative Industries Precinct Pty Ltd
* Suzannah Conway, Chief Executive Officer, Australasian CRC for Interaction Design
* Regan Gourley, Patent Attorney, Cullen & Co.
* Matthew Tobin, Creative Director, Urban Arts Projects
* Christina Waterson, Architectural Artist
CCau has created two animations for QUT Smart Train, the Queensland University of Technology’s outreach project. Both animations star the fabulous Mayer and Bettle, CCau’s favourite advocates, with the second featuring a cameo by newcomer Flik. They aim to provide a fun and accessible explanation of Creative Commons. Watch them below, or for more information, go to their dedicated pages:
CCau also created an introductory [Seed Animation](animation_seed) for its licence launch. You can view it [here](animation_seed).
That’s right – the kooky CCau duo Mayer and Bettle are back! And this time, they have a friend.
Following on from their fabulously successful cinematic debut, in which they introduced us all to Creative Commons, the new film provides a bit of an update as to what has been happening in Creative Commons over the last two years, and gives us a bit more information on using the Creative Commons licences. To do this, they travel into Creative Commons world, and run into one of Bettle’s fans and collaborators, Flik.
Like the previous animation, this sequel was commissioned to inform young people (mainly targeted at upper high school) about the Creative Commons licences. It was produced by the original team, with animation by Pete Foley and sound and music by Chris Perren. The project was co-ordinated by our own Elliott Bledsoe. The animation was commissioned for the QUT Smart Train, which will be traveling around Queensland over the next few months, telling people all about some of the great things happening here at QUT.

Yes, that’s right – we’ve got an update on the Powerhouse Museum’s foray into the Commons on Flickr already.
As part of their initiative to release out-of-copyright photos from their Tyrrell Collection on Flickr (see below), Powerhouse has just launched a new initiative – Tyrrell Today. It aims to extend the Powerhouse Museum’s set of images on The Commons by allowing members of the public to post contemporary images from the same Sydney-centric locations as the original Tyrrell photos.
And, excitingly for us, they’re encouraging people to provide the photos under a CC licence, so that the Powerhouse can archive them as part of their ongoing collection.
