Having attended the excellent presentations at the conference, given by Bob Clark and Maureen O'Sullivan, on Intellectual Property Rights and Creative Commons, I thought I was getting to grips with the whole issue of copyright (and even copyleft). But I've just read this blog entry from David Wiley, about licensing and restrictions, and I'm more confused than ever.
He talks about permissible restrictions and license incompatibility. It seems that even those of us who are aware of restrictions and try to do the right thing, are probably getting it wrong. How is any person without legal training supposed to understand the intricacies?
Moreover, and given the current role of CELT in upgrading Blackboard at NUI Galway, what is the responsibility (& liability) of the institution, where staff are making resources available to students through the VLE?
