Creative Commons Recognition

Glyn Moody points to a survey conducted by UK’s Office of Public Sector Information (OPSI) regarding copyright terminology and presentation on government websites. The results found that 75% of the public did not recognize the Creative Commons license logos, nor what they means. The survey had 1350 respondents. From the survey results:

Only those likely to be more familiar with copyright (inferred from their route to the survey) are likely to have a previous understanding of Creative Commons terminology and imagery. One might argue that if these are used moving forward, more people will become more familiar with these, however, the benefits at this stage of shared / added meaning would only really apply to a minority…

    I am total agreed with a solid education because this is aor legacy who must continuity from aor children.I observ many thinks diferent from my old time wen I have youngher.This generation it’s very dificil to cotrol because the time change and this change bring change in behavior of aor children who is not do in the right direction.Many childrens ignore culture not reeding books not can do a discussion with a high level of informatio because not have a culture.The culture is very important in each sector or domai activity and in each corner of planet.Without education the generation it is a weeknes and in the future is reflected in all domins of activity.It is a targhet easy from gangs or friends with doubtful activity they not like to work ,many childrens not have hope in future not have a targhet a horizont.But here is it and aor wrong education or example personal.It is very hard to teach in present the new generation and convince to choice the right way,because the rong way is more simplicity.
    I see and I hearning personal many opinions from varios yangh peoples and I am shock wat they think.
