Regarding Creative Commons

Regarding Creative Commons

Creative commons attracted me a few years ago with the Connexions website operated by Rice University. It is also said that most international trade desk research may be conducted online. Copyright-free materials may however lack relevancy, timeliness, or veracity.

At the same time Cambridge University Press Korea editors have encouraged me to submit a prospectus for a book on international trade correspondence for lower intermediate students as it may be an unserviced local content niche. In that case I would eagerly seek copyright protection to commercialize original work. It would need to provide future value or enough profit to at least pay for its distribution. One acts in one's own best interests regarding creative commons.

I am of a mixed opinion regarding the net benefits of copyrights and their disadvantages for poorer nations overall as a result of reading Ha-Joon Chang's opinions on the topic in, Bad Samaritans: The Myth of Free Trade and the Secret History of Capitalism (2008).
