Creative Commons and Digital Rights Management by Mind Map: Creative Commons and Digital Rights Management

1. I began creating this document in order to explore the use of Digital Rights Management (DRM) in the creative process. This journey has granted me a greater appreciation of the discussion surrounding DRM and Creative Commons. The links included here are examples I thought made good arguments or illustrations of each step of the creative process. I have tried to find examples from varied sources in several industries to paint a broad picture while maintaining a concise view of this process. I hope that this tool will help others to find an entry point into this discussion using the resources I have found.
