Websites for user-generated content very popular now - Google Video, Yahoo Video, YouTube are just a few of the big ones. All have different approaches but the big commercial video-sharing sites have a few things in common which mean we need to provide independent alternatives for distributing our own media on the Internet.

Many of the new commercial media sharing sites offer highly restrictive terms and conditions on their user contributions. The most dubious is that of YouTube who state:"by submitting the User Submissions to YouTube, you hereby grant YouTube a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Submissions in connection with the YouTube Website and YouTube's (and its successor's) business in any media formats and through any media channels.GO INTO THIS A BIT MORE IN DISCUSSION

Front Page

FIRST Ill Take you through the website briefly

Login

What happens when you log in to EngageMedia, an idea of what you can do on the site.

Edit your profile

Publish Video

Publish Events

Publish News

Navigate to your workspace where you can upload files and share them in order to collaborate with other media makers or promote your video work

Use Case:

Video Maker

How different people would use the site.

Participatory Media - help to break down the divide between consumer and producer of media

Many members of the EngageMedia online community may be both interested in progressive video content from the region and also be video makers themselves.

How you would experience the site if you had your video maker hat on.

Profile

Join the site and establish a profile. Very useful for independent producers who wish to promote their work through the site, as well as giving you a bit of personality to help make the online community more real and more successful.

Pip Starr is a local activist video maker who has worked with SKA TV at Channel 31 to produce pieces about asylum seeker and indigenous issues, climate change and is now working on a piece about the nuclear industry.

Contact details, what activities he is involved in, and what mediums he likes to work in such as TV, DVD, Web and Film.

Hoping that this will facilitate collaboration - one video maker looks at another video makers work on the site and decides they might like to work together on a production. Help connect producers with distributors - film festivals, community TV and the like.

See latest video contributions to the site - and has your own personal Vodcast link. A vodcast is a video podcast, that lets people subscribe to your video channel and download your latest videos automatically in a program like iTunes or Democracy Player.

You can download the video from here - watch it, screen it and share it as long as you follow the Creative Commons license - more on that now

open content licensing system

alternative to restrictive copyright

some rights reserved NOT all rights reserved

flexible system to allow choice of licenses

Explanation of what Creative Commons is about:

Open content licensing system - contributing to a collectively owned pool of free culture as opposed to individual intellectual property

alternative to copyright - copyright applies by default on any video that you produce and is very restrictive about what others can do with your video. People arent allowed to screen your work in a community venue, at a fundraiser or anywhere without your explicit permission

some rights reserved NOT all rights reserved like traditional copyright

flexible system to allow choice - you choose who can re-use your work in what ways

Attribution - if they give you credit

Noncommercial - for noncommercial purposes.

No Derivative Works - verbatim copies of your work, not derivative works based upon it.

Share Alike - derivative works only under a license identical to the license that governs your work.

You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your copyrighted work ONLY:All Creative Commons licenses revolve around these basic concepts, you can mix and match which ones you choose. The license will say:

You let others copy, distribute, display, and perform your copyrighted work ONLY:

Attribution - if they give you credit - THIS APPLIES TO ALL CREATIVE COMMONS LICENSES

Noncommercial - YOU CAN CHOOSE THIS UNLESS YOU DONT MIND IF PEOPLE USE YOUR WORK FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO GET YOUR MESSAGE OUT THIS WILL POTENTIALLY ALLOW MUCH WIDER DISTRIBUTION OF YOUR WORK

No Derivative Works - PEOPLE CANT REMIX YOUR WORK IF YOU CHOOSE THIS OPTION

Share Alike - PEOPLE CAN REMIX YOUR WORK, OR USE PORTIONS OF IT IN THEIR OWN WORK BUT THEY HAVE TO LET PEOPLE REMIX THEIR WORK TOO

You can choose from a few different combinations of those to use in your Creative Commons license.
