I’m excited to be presenting, with Brenda Johima, at WordCamp 2012 on the topic of: disclosures, attribution and copyright.
In the ever evolving realm of social media and the internet, content is created and shared. Now that we’re blogging, how do we credit the original creator? Do we have the right to use the image or written copy? Does our audience really need to know if we are paid to write a post, or received free tickets to an event?
We’ll examine some of the best practices and standards for disclosing, consider the importance of attribution, and discuss the sometimes thorny issue of copyright. Giving credit where credit is due, while remaining transparent – is it possible?
