Invention, Intellectual Property, and Income
A week dedicated to learning about the process of invention, how to properly secure and share intellectual property, and the importance of income
This week, we learned about intellectual property and how to properly navigate the process of securing it. CC Chapman came in and helped teach us these concepts, and ran us through how to start this with our final projects. He led a talk and ran through a ton of different options, the most interesting of which was creative commons.
I decided to start the process of licensing my final project with the above restrictions. I made it so that adaptations are allowed, as long as those who expand upon my work also share their work with others. I also did not allow commercial use, because I didn't feel like it.
