Sit down with a rep from the center/forum/whatever and make the case

for using a creative commons license I already feel well-equipped to do that. I'll talk about the types of uses which the center probably wants to allow but which are by default prohibited by copyright law in the US. I can get tips from this: http://learn.creativecommons.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/cclearn-explanations-oer-and-cc-licenses-05-apr-09.pdf, and I can even leave a copy of it with them.

Propose that they use CC-BY, but if they say no, offer to help them choose a different CC license (hopefully with as few restrictions as possible)

I feel pretty well-equipped to do this too. I'll look at http://creativecommons.org/choose/ with them and help them decide which permissions they're willing to grant. I'll even point them to http://wiki.creativecommons.org/FFAQ#Is_use_X_a_violation_of_the_Noncommercial_clause_of_the_licenses.3F if they're confused about the reach of "noncommercial." I can leave them a copy of http://wiki.creativecommons.org/images/a/a4/Creativecommons-how-to-license-poster_eng.pdf if they want to mull it over or consult someone else.

This part is key: hand them any waivers that they'll need as well as

instructions for how to use them (do both speakers and videographers have to sign it, for example?)

    • I need help with this!

== Finally, hand them a chunk of html that they can put on their website to articulate the license right next to where they embed the video == It's probably also a good idea to give them some plaintext that they can throw in the description field on their youtube page. This is easy--http://creativecommons.org/choose/ gives it right to you!

I found a lot of awesome material on the CC site, especially at http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Documentation. But I wasn't able to find the stock waivers that I'm looking for. Help!
