19. Invention, intellectual property and income¶
Dissemination of my Final Project¶
When considering the methods of copyrighting for my project, I noted two important aspects of concept. Firstly, there are several renditions of my project on the market currently, and I am not looking to push into the CPR dummy business. Secondly, I primarily built my project to help people learn the skills and techniques of CPR. I want to share my device and the steps that led to its creation.
I decided to publish my project with an open source, Creative Commons License. I learned about this type of licensing in my computer science class. I then expanded my understanding of this licensing during this Fab Academy weekly assignment. By utilizing this type of copyrighting, I am allowing other creators to build off of my ideas without having to ask me specifically for permission.
I decided to use a Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license (CC BY-NC-SA).
Any user that wants to use my project ideas will have to recognize me as the original creator.
No one can use my ideas to make money.
Any derivatives of my design must have the same Creative Commons license.
