Thank you, Sean!

Sean, please accept our digital thank yous for leading an interesting, engaging, and informative lecture on copyright and open access for our English 3120: Electronic Writing & Publishing class. You can access student comments on this posting, and I also copy and pasted them into a Wordle – our equivalent of a thank you card. 🙂

  2. Yes! Thank you for helping us get a better understanding of the possibilities with open access but also the limitations with copyright. I will be a lot more cautious with what photos, videos, or articles I post to make sure they are okay to use. I had no idea of the possibilities but only the limitations of copyright.

  3. Hey Sean! Just wanted to say thank you for coming in and informing us about copyright. I think that Creative Commons is not only neat, but a very innovative idea to build and spread knowledge.

  4. Thank you very much for the presentation this past Monday. I learned a lot on the original nature of copyright, particularly its origins as a Constitutional right. I had always believed a copyright protected under the law was more a curse for spreading new ideas previously. Now I understand its value towards promoting innovation and the flow of ideas.

  6. Thank you so very much for talking to us about Copyright and Creative Commons. I learned so much about using the artistic creation of other as well as things that I might eventually use with regard my own work. It was a fascinating and enlightening conversation.

  8. Hey Sean,

    I so appreciate your visit to our class this past Monday. It’s useful to know that I can copyright my own creations and I’m happy to have learned about the best Open Source websites where I can find information to use in my own work.

  9. The lecture was a really concise breakdown of how different mediums can seek protection, but it was also an interesting look into creative commons and their mission to get back to encouraging creativity. I like the idea that innovation and creativity should be shared and improved upon. Thanks for all the information!

  10. Thank you for visiting our class. Your presentation was very informative and interesting. I especially enjoyed the part about learning how to publish my own work and share my creative material with other artists.

  11. Thank you, Sean, for your insight and expertise on the topic of copyrighting! I thought that the concept of sharing information and works in a free market was the most intersting point; it makes one think differently about copyright laws, their enforcement, and their purpose.

    Thanks again!

  12. Hi Sean,

    Thank you for teaching our class so much about what copyright is and how to go about getting something copyrighted. The most interesting thing I took from your discussion was the creative sharing. It’s interesting and very nice to know that people are willing to allow others access to their work and receive credit as well. Thanks for teaching us so much!

  13. Sean,

    Thank you so much for all of the information you presented to our class on copyright, infringement, the various types of creative commons licenses, etc. Personally, I was happy to hear from a fellow advocate for the “open platform/open-source” party. Your presentation was both informative and lively. Thank you again, and I look forward to seeing more presentations from you in the future.

  16. Thanks Sean for taking out the time from your busy schedule to speak with us on Monday. You really had some valuable information. Something interesting I learned was the Creative Commons open worldly access. It’s nice how you can share your work and interact with people throughout the world!
