CAN I USE THAT PICTURE? HOW TO LEGALLY USE COPYRIGHTED IMAGES
What was once a web filled with code and scrolling text, the Internet is now the world’s largest conglomerate of images.

Brazil was one of the first affiliate jurisdictions of Creative Commons, established in 2003. Since then, the project has become well-known in a number of communities of users as well as content creators, and, following a trend observed in other jurisdictions, encouraged CC as the prevalent mode of open licensing adopted by government, nonprofits, and for open access and educational resources.
In copyright law, a derivative work is an expressive creation that includes major copyright-protected elements of an original, previously created first work (the underlying work). The derivative work becomes a second, separate work independent in form from the first. The transformation, modification or adaptation of the work must be substantial and bear its author’s personality to be original and thus protected by copyright. Translations, cinematic adaptations and musical arrangements are common types of derivative works.
FAIR USE OF COPYRIGHT
Copyright is a form of intellectual property that gives tha author of an original work exclusive right for a certain time of period in relation to that work.
GENEVA DECLARATION ON THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ORGANIZATION
On October 4, 2004, the General Assembly of the World Intellectual Property Organization agreed to adopt a proposal offered by Argentina and Brazil, the “Proposal for the Establishment of a Development Agenda for WIPO” (sometimes referred to as “Item 12” because of its placement listing on the meeting’s agenda). This proposal was strongly supported by developing countries, as well as by a large contingent of civil society. Prior to the General Assembly meeting, hundreds of nonprofits, scientists, academics and other individuals had signed the “Geneva Declaration on the Future of WIPO,” which calls on WIPO to focus more on the needs of developing countries, and to view IP as one of many tools for development – not as an end in itself.

LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
The U.S. Copyright Office, and the position of Register of Copyrights, were created by Congress in 1897 as a separate department of the Library of Congress. Twenty-two years earlier, Congress removed copyright registration from the district courts and centralized it in the Library of Congress. Today, the Copyright Office has approximately 400 employees, the majority of whom examine and register hundreds of thousands of copyright claims in books, music, movies, software, photographs, and other works of authorship each year. In fiscal year 2014, the Office processed more than 476,000 registration claims.

THE POWER OF OPEN
Creative Commons created the legal and technical infrastructure that allows effective sharing of knowledge, art and data by individuals, organizations and governments. More importantly, millions of creators took advantage of that infrastructure to share work that enriches the global commons for all humanity. The Power of Open collects the stories of those creators.

It will serve as a forum for the exchange of different perspectives at national, regional and international levels. There will be numerous opportunities to engage with top experts from around the world and exchange experiences and best practices on how IP contributes to development.
