Open Source Shorts is a screening of short films released under Creative Commons licences.
Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors and artists and build on the “all rights reserved” concept of traditional copyright to offer a voluntary “some rights reserved” approach.
With Creative Commons licences people are free to share and remix creative works. Exercising creativity without the threat of being labelled pirates. The screening will be followed by a short discussion on Creative Commons.
This event is presented by Irish artist Kevin Flanagan at the Nuns Island Arts Centre, Galway Ireland at 5pm Saturday 2nd of December.
