Creative Commons is a great way to introduce journalism students about copyright, licensing, digital media, and the opportunities inherent to online journalism. It’s also a way to spark discussions about what it means to be a journalist and what the aims are in publishing a journalistic work.

- CC Australia infopack for educators
- EFF Teaching Copyright
- Commonwealth of Learning (PDF)
- U.S. Copyright Office
