More and more content creators like musicians, photo-/videographers, bloggers and journalists are dependent on digital platforms to host and share their content. Most of the power to decide who can upload, under which conditions is exercised through a lengthy Terms of Service page. Online legal documentation created by legal teams to protect the digital platform, not per se to support makers.

We need your input to improve a new tool we are building, TakeNode(.org). Would you like to empower creators? Or just want to see and test what we have built so far? And why? Join us!

On Sep 22 we shared TakeNode with a group of designers, activists, coders, students and social hackers. They really like the simplicity and the effort to transform something really boring (copyright law, terms of use, license agreements) into a 30-60 second effort to protect creative works before uploaded to the internet. Some questions we can maybe reuse during this session:
  • Will you offer this tool in other languages except EN/NL so it becomes more accessible to creatives around the world?
  • Can you take the open source code & structure from this tool and replace the generic licenses/intentions with CC licenses? How will this benefit the CC world?
  • Are there content sharing platforms (e.g. the ones who have to comply with new copyright laws) showing interest in copy/pasting the mechanism as part of their upload procedure?
  • Can this tool be used for public domain works / GLAM? Can we replace the "content creator" with "archivist" or any other professional  responsible for a collection of digital works?
  • You are using a clever way to offer content creators a 'verified by' status but how can you scale this to other parts of Europe, America... the world? 
  • Is Google interested to use this for content uploaded to YouTube?
  • Who will own this initiative and how can you safeguard I can do a reverse lookup in 10 years' time and still find the metadata of the work, rightsholder, timestamp etc. ?
Of course, you are invited to play with the tool: https://www.takenode.org before you join this session.
Some basic examples of how content + TakeNode end up on Twitter, Flickr and YouTube can be found here: https://twitter.com/TakeNodeOrg
