We watch a lot of TED. The reason we all can watch a lot of TED is because TED licences their videos under CC BY-NC-ND 3.0. I can’t imagine a world without TEDTalks. My education would have stopped the moment I took off the square cap and gown, there would be a lot less discussion at the dinner table and I would have a lot more bandwidth available at the end of the month.
Margaret Gould Stewart is YouTube’s head of user experience. Her “TED in less than six minutes” outlines the benefits of digital rights identification and why you should think carefully about choosing your licence. By watching a video on YouTube you are part of the digital rights management system. And by choosing an open licence you are helping to create a culture of opportunity, like our friend TED. While big corporates may have some ground to cover in this creative ecosystem this talk is a lovely example of when they borrow from the little guy and everybody wins.
