Hi! I have some questions regarding the use of Creative Commons licenses in the OER creation and remixing. I have looked for the answer in the FAQ section at creativecommons.com and I could find a clear answer.
I’m creating an educational lesson for my students, a 20 page document with my own texts and pictures. I will license my work with CC BY-SA. Will it be considered a remix if I include one picture with illustrative aim in this material (indicating author, source and license)? The image will not suffer any modification, it is only included inside a larger work, and only for illustration (not significant picture). Is it considered a remix? Will it depende on how significant the picture is in the whole material? In case it is a remix, I could only use PD, BY or BY-SA pictures. So, no BY-NC-SA or BY-ND may be included. Some doubts came to my mind when I read this article http://xolotl.org/open-licensing-over-tv-dinners-and-smoothies/, as I understand the by-SA license applies only to the work I am creating, not to the other parts I include.
Other questions regarding OER creation:
- Is Pixabay license (https://pixabay.com/service/license/) compatible with CC BY-SA? I have a lot of doubts about this: It doesn’t require attribution, but it doesn’t allow selling, for example. May I use Pixabay pictures to illustrate an OER (an educational material)? Is it a good practice?
- May I use copyright material under one copyright exception if I’m going to publish it as an OER? Is it a good practice?
- May I embed a YouTube video with YouTube standard license in an OER? (embed, not file inserted, the video is hosted in Youtube platform). Is it a good practice?
Thanks a lot!!
