Virtual Cultures Notes

A very good chapter from the book, New Media

I looked at the "useful websites" portion at the bottom of page 81, and the clickzstats websites has a lot of useful information

The relationship between technology and presenting ideas has drastically changed in the past few years, and this chapter demonstrates it greatly



control where the readers eyes go

use bold, size, italics and colors


use the same colors, fonts, and images within a page and from page-to-page

use consistent labeling throughout


chose one alignment and stick to it

move elements away from edges


consider the relationship of elements

dont spread elements around to "fill" space; "white" space is okay


The Public Domain is the rule, copyright protection is the exception

Copyright protection should last only as long as necessary to achieve a reasonable compromise between protecting and rewarding the author for his intellectual labour and safeguarding the public interest in the dissemination of culture and knowledge

What is in the Public Domain must remain in the Public Domain

The lawful user of a digital copy of a Public Domain work should be free to (re-)use, copy and modify such work.

Contracts or technical protection measures that restrict access to and re-use of Public Domain works must not be enforced

Fair Use

Law provides copyright protection to “works of authorship” in order to foster the creation of culture. Its best-known feature is protection of owners’ rights

we as a society give limited property rights to creators to encourage them to produce culture; at the same time, we give other creators the chance to use that same copyrighted material, without permission or payment, in some circumstances. Without the second half of the bargain, we could all lose important new cultural work.

Fair use is flexible; it is not unreliable

Fair use is healthy and vigorous in daily broadcast television news, where references to popular films, classic TV programs, archival images, and popular songs are both prevalent and routinely unlicensed.

Creative Commons

an alternative method for marking creative products and publications.

becoming increasingly useful for higher education because it will allow faculty to use and share materials without worrying as much about breaking copyright.

All you need to do is give proper credit to the person who produced/published the image.
