Why are we prosecuting students for sharing knowledge?

In July the Electronic Frontier Foundation wrote about the predicament that Colombian student Diego Gomez found himself in after he shared a research article online. Gomez is a graduate student in conservation and wildlife management at a small university. He has generally poor access to many of the resources and databases that would help him […]

Otwarta edukacja 1.

開放近用的公眾領域

把「開放近用」(Open Access)和「公眾領域」(Public Domain)兩類概念併連,成為這篇短文的標題,是有些奇怪。公眾領域內的作品,不受著作權法的限制,任何人可以自由使用。至於開放近用,一般是指已公開的資訊,方便眾人親近使用。屬於公眾領域的,就已是開放近用,不是嗎? 在理想的情境下,的確我們不需要再強調公眾領域的開放近用特性。但是,現實上許多屬於公眾領域的,卻常不能被眾人自由取得、再次使用。公眾領域的概念,本質上已有些模糊,概指已超過著作權法保護年限的作品(或是自始即不受保護的對象,如法律條文、政府公文書等),沒有使用上的限制。著作一旦「落入」(fall into)公眾領域,該作品即可被任意使用,這是一般的認知。也就是,公眾領域被認為具有一界線的領域,跨過此界線的即屬於公眾,任何人不得設限。但是,哪些著作已跨越此界線,卻常不清楚。這常要看著作是否已過保護年限(台灣為五十年,美國為七十年),而這又跟著作人是否已死亡相關(或是其初次出版時間相關)。這也跟所適用的著作權法為何、該著作的出版時地、以及著作權人當初是否另有權利上的安排等因素有關。這些因素也是每年變動的(「今年剛好滿五十年了!」)。 2014-09-04T16:00:00Z emyleo

10月強檔活動預告

近幾年影音創作愈發蓬勃,相關的活動也愈來愈普及。然而,製作一部影片,可能會涉及語文著作、音樂著作、攝影著作、美術著作、視聽著作、錄音著作等多元著作的運用,必然會面臨許多著作權或授權的問題。 今年我們特別針對「影音多媒體創作」與「公眾授權(創用CC授權)」的關係進行整理與呈現。我們策劃一系列活動,讓大家藉由有趣多樣的方式,瞭解彼此間的關連與重要性。 最近剛完成「概念短片」的拍攝活動,透過一群對影音創作有熱情的同學們,對創用CC授權推動理念的理解,打造全新的概念影片,從劇情設定、腳本設計,到拍攝執行,一手包辦。三段不同的小故事,呈現創用CC「分享、混搭、再利用」的核心精神,短片彼此各自獨立,卻又相互關連。 2014-09-04T07:20:22Z emyleo

透過開放建築設計改變世界

在1999年,他們為了解決科索沃的移民問題而在網站上召喚眾人一起提供設計藍圖;2001年,他們轉為關注在非洲撒哈拉以南設立愛滋病流動診所;2004年,他們針對伊朗的自然災後重建;2005年,則是為了卡崔納颶風帶來的災情共同努力。 當他們接獲越來越多的建築請求之後,便決定要將這些徵求計劃公開,利用網路平台讓更多人可以提案、分享想法,且有機會能與不同專業和社群的人合作,也使當地的人可以參與問題解決的流程、陳述他們對於建築的真正需求為何。透過此平台,產生的不只是一個想法,而是成千上萬個能促進所有人生活品質的設計想法。於是,在2006年他們建立了Open Architecture網站,2011年Architecture for Humanity和Open Architecture正式合併改名為Worldchanging。 2014-09-02T06:18:02Z dkoooh

開放共享成為物件從原型到產品的推手

Fritzing 是一個開放源碼的網站,由Andre Knörig在德國應用科學大學的交互設計實驗室開發完成,起初只是一個單純的研究項目,現在則為10000名以上使用者紀錄與分享自己電子原型的開放分 享平台。 2007年Fritzing以arduino和processing的創建精神出發,支持使用者能持續創造性的開展工作,在這裡用戶可以紀錄並分享自己的電子基礎原型,用以製造印刷電路板的佈局,更可以促進用戶分享並討論自身經驗及草稿,達到分享及互惠之效。如此除了可以提升製造效率之外,更可以降低製造成本,集結眾人力量縮短產品開發週期。 2014-08-30T02:18:17Z l1shan
