Jesse Dylan, the co-creator of the Emmy award winning Barack Obama support video Yes We Can has released a new work, this time explaining the Creative Commons Foundation's science initiative, Science Commons.Film director
Dylan, who coincidentally is the eldest son of folk legend Bob Dylan, uses his familiar style to aggregate a quick selection of scientists explaining why a web-based revision of copyright policy is so important for the advancement of scientists. "Scientists are the ultimate remixers," one interviewee says, and we agree that Creative Commons in science is a very exciting idea.
Few media are as compelling as video and we hope that this new short work is helpful in garnering support for Creative Commons in the sciences.
Dylan's work joins a long list of well made Creative Commons videos, which have been helpful in explaining the movement to revise copyright to countless people, no doubt including even President Elect Barack Obama, whose own website was recently put under a Creative Commons license.
