[Ghm-discuss] GHM 2017 presentations: permission to publish your videos and slides
Mon, 11 Sep 2017 15:13:26 +0200
Gnus (Gnus v5.13), GNU Emacs 184.108.40.206, x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Video presentations from the last GHM will soon be available on
audio-video.gnu.org , thanks to the gracious work by Christopher Dimech
who actually took care of shooting.
Before I can upload your presentation I need your consent on publishing
the video, under a reasonable license.
On audio-video we tend to use Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike
4.0 International for videos, but some reasonable alternative can be
found -- disjunctive licenses also including CC-SA-4.0 being
particularly unproblematic. More permissive licenses such as CC-BY are
also perfectly okay, and Christopher's arguments in favor of allowing
modifications on a wider range of distributed works might apply here.
I would also like to link presentation files from the same page showing
the videos; Alex, were you collecting them? Of course keeping the files
on the main www.gnu.org web server -- for example in the GHM 2017
directory -- is fine. If a copy of your presentation is to be hosted
anywhere on gnu.org it needs an explicit license as well -- and it's
better to have one in any case. I'd recommend the same CC-SA-4.0 or
CC-BY-4.0 for simplicity, but again some reasonable alternative can be
By the way, I think the main information on http://www.gnu.org/ghm
should be moved to a subdirectory, to join the past editions. This
will avoid broken links later.
So, if you gave a presentation at GHM 2017, please reply to this message
(in private if you prefer) with the following information:
(a) whether you would like your video to be published
(b) if (a), what license to use for it (CC-SA 4.0 or CC-BY 4.0 suggested)
(c) if (a), what license to use for your slides (CC-SA 4.0 or CC-BY 4.0
If you have already sent a copy of your slides to Alex you don't need to
send another to me.
Alex, can you please send me a tarball with any presentations you have
received off-list? Stable URLs are also okay if not better, in case you
have already published them. Linking from audio-video to www is better
than the opposite; audio-video will be reorganized at some point, and
I'm not sure if the current URLs are supposed to be kept.
Thanking the speakers in advance,

I support everyone's freedom of mocking any opinion or belief, no
matter how deeply held, with open disrespect and the same unrelented
enthusiasm of a toddler who has just learned the word "poo".
