In this episode, we have a discussion about strategies to combine screencasting, audio podcasting and video for an entrepreneur business.
Key to this discussion is the description that Dave Jackson gives us about his business and multiple podcasts. Dave is one of the very first podcasters in 2005, who is known as “The Podcast Coach” and headmaster of The School of Podcasting show and Premium Membership Site Program.
This discussion was recorded during Dave’s session of a google+ hangout (which he provides every Saturday morning at 10:30 Eastern time) called ASK THE PODCAST COACH. This is not only a live video-based google+ hangout on air, but also it is an audio podcast to which you can subscribe in iTunes(R).
As you will also hear in this audio episode, we also go into a discussion about how you, as a podcaster, screencaster or content creator can incorporate public info and published audio clips (such as from a podcast episode) to discuss themes, topics and issues that were previously talked about by a possible interviewee (but who may be unavailable — e.g., he may be so busy that this individual cannot participate in your show).
We take the example of Dave Jackson and his clip that was used in this episode — and then use this format to create content around the clip. For us, it is almost like having an interview without the interviewee in a live interview.
NOTE: However, you may wish to inform the content creator of the clip of content you wish to use, and also get permission from him (please see the section, below, called “SPECIAL NOTE AND ADDENDUM.”)
We also talked about free resources from Lon Naylor that are available from the link of LearnCamtasia.com:
Sign up for the FREE Screencaster’s Toolkit, which will contain:
– Ace the Audio screencast; and
– Video Settings in Plain English screencast
and other tools.
SPECIAL NOTE and ADDENDUM:
To listen to what he said, please go to the episode 443 and you can hear his comments, from the time stamp of 7:15 minutes to 11:30 minutes (only 4 and 1/2 minutes). As he states, he has no problem with our using the audio clip from his show.
However, as a tip for podcasters or screencasters, he also points out that you may not feel comfortable in having other people access and republish your content or clips or audio, etc., without express permission. In his blog at the School of Podcasting, he provides written comments and suggestions at this link:
If you read the section titled “Creative Commons Licensing,” Dave suggests how this uneasiness can be addressed. It is by providing a Creative Commons License to your content. There are multiple Creative Commons License options.
The option that Dave provides is in his blog:
“This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.”
He also gives the link of https://creativecommons.org/licenses/
so that you can see for yourself the options and select the one that you wish to use to license your content.
STRATEGY HINT: On the positive side, one strategy to consider is that you may want to engage with people who WANT to use your content. By putting a Creative Commons Attribution license, you can encourage (and require) them to contact you for repurposing or publishing on their own content distribution and delivery systems. This is a good way to know who is engaged and to let you help them use your content. You may want to partner with them, etc.
However, we are NOT giving legal advice (nor should this text be considered as such), as we are not attorneys. We merely report on what others are saying and perhaps hint at a strategy that may work for you. But when in doubt of legal issues that deal with podcasting, screencasting or any kind of New Media content creation, distribution, delivery or repurposing, etc., you can always contact an attorney who specializes in such law (in fact, he himself has a podcast show of his own that deals in New Media content law). From our consumption of podcasts and interviews and after having heard him in a Podcasters Roundtable, we would like to make you aware that one such attorney is Gordon Firemark, who can be reached at:
