Hi everyone! I am Pepi, this week I am the translator and these are the key words that I have selected to explain. The reason of my election is because they are the essential basic concepts which we have to know before understanding how to start using Creative Common Licenses and making a good presentation. 

Creative Common Licenses: is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 by Lawrence Lessig, Hal Abelson and Erix Eldred. It is led by different professional people such as educators, technologists, lawyers, investors and philanthropists among others. Creative Common Licenses makes possible share, use, edit and so on materials for free without spending your time and resources trying to get permission of the authors because the permission has already been granted. It does not replace copyright, it permits you to modify your copyright in order to change them according to your needs. They are recognized around the world because they are based on the legal rules of intellectual property. Depending on your preferences, you can choose among six different licenses to mark your material, if someone break your permission, you will be informed. On the other hand and at similar way, if you want to use licensed material, you must attribute to their author and specify some other information such as title, source and type of license. Besides you will have to follow and comply with their restrictions or, if you want to use it in other way that they do not permit with CC license, you can get in touch with the author and be granted the permission.

Attribution: it is a condition that people who use CC licensed material have to follow in all type of CC licensed. This is compulsory and the less restrictive license. When people use CC licensed material have to inform that this material has a different author and write information such as the title, author, source, and type of license. It is necessary and compulsory to attribute by naming only the author, but the perfect attribution would be the one explained before and linking to the original source in which the material was obtained, and the profile web of the author. This could be compared as when we use some theories, ideas and so on from books, websites or articles that we are forced to use APA references. Attribution would be something similar but in the CC licensed scenario with photos, videos, blogs, which are different types of materials and the support will be on the net.

Copyright: is a law that gives you rights over the things that you create such as books, paintings, music, videos…It is considered as human basic rights and it lasts, depending on the country, around 50 years after the death of the author. Once this time expires, these materials became public domain. From the moment that you are creating them, they start having copyright, it is automatic and it protects you to avoid that your material can be used, displayed, reused, edited, by others without your previous authorization. If someone do it without your agreement, you are in your rights to take them to court and ask for a compensation.

Public domain: if some materials or resources are under public domain, it means that this material is free to be used by anyone who wants to and for any purpose without restriction. This is because there is not an owner of these resources, the author has died and the time after the death has expired, (50 years, or depending on the country could be more) or no one controls them, or the copyright is not correctly done. It is necessary to distinguish between a material under Public Domain and those which have already been changed using a Public Domain material by an author, in this case, the new material becomes a property of this author and acquires copyright. When we use material under Public Domain we have to be sure that it is the original one, not derivate material which will have copyright.

Glance test: is a term used by Nancy Duarte to refer to the quality that the slides in a presentation must have. According to her, to overcome her glance test people should be able to understand each slide in three seconds. Slides must be considered as billboards, taking into account that you must read all the content while you are driving, so they cannot have millions of words, only the key ones. If slides are full of text, audience will get lost. Slides are the support or the presenter, they are an index of them. To sum up, to pass glance test, slides must have only the key words to support the presenter and must be read in three seconds each.

I hope you learn them as well as we have done during the whole week. It has been a pleasure to share this little knowledge with you!

See you soon bloggers!
All my love
