Those interested in learning more about creative commons and how to navigate an open license may be interested in the following article posted on the Creative Commons website. The resource being announced is focused more around project and open courseware than single authored works such as ETDs, but you may still find valuable information to be gleaned.
There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to choosing a CC license. The factors are different for everyone, whether you’re an individual creator or an institution. Usually, the decision is made and the process by which it was made fades into memory or only remains via word of mouth or blog posts. The Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) didn’t want this to happen so they decided to document their process when the community held its first workshop in Berlin. A Guide to CHOOSING AN OPEN LICENCE: The Peer 2 Peer University Experience is the result of their efforts.
