Illustrated and Narrated Explanation of Creative Commons

The nuances of Copyright and Creative Commons and the differences between them can be confusing. I recently came across this neat little video that does a good job of explaining Creative Commons and what Creative Commons licenses allow or do not allow people to do with your works. A PDF of the images in the video can be found here.

Applications for Education
If you find yourself trying to explain to students or colleagues the differences between copyright and Creative Commons licensed works this video and PDF could be helpful to you and to them.
