What is copyright?

So you might be wondering why we are dedicating a whole webinar to this topic - and its because we think its important that all Wikians understand what happens to the content they contribute. So lets start with the basics, copyright is defined by wikipedia  as “a legal concept that… gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other related rights.”

CC-BY-SA

CC-BY-SA & Your Contribs

How does this apply to text that you import or images that you add? If you are importing text, it needs to be compatible with the cc by-sa license and follow any other stipulations set by its license.

If you are adding images, we strongly recommend you use images that are public doman or freely licensed. We also recommend that you cite where the image comes from, who created it and what its specific copyright is. This is one area you may want to create a policy about on your wiki so that other users are encouraged to add copyright information to the images
