I respect copyright law, and in doing so I always try and source openly licensedimages, software, video, audio, research, courses, and presentations.  Because resources from these types of sources have an open license such as Creative Commons I can use them legally under the simple conditions; most often giving attribution to the resource creator and sharing the material onwards.

So while I believe it is important for students to be aware of and respect copyright law, I believe it is even more important that they be aware of the wealth of material available for reuse, mashups, integration into projects, etc.

So we are trying to come up with some posters which complement the copyright campaign by alerting students to the potential of using openly licensed contentinstead of violating copyright.  I am crowdsourcing ideas here so please leave us a comment or a link to a similar campaign.
