Absolutely - totally agree. I was listening to a great Futurelab podcast a couple of days ago where they were talking about supporting students around the making of videos. The speaker mentioned that in quite a few schools videos were being made by students using "chart music" rather than podsafe / CC music - which is of course rather 'illegal'. He then mentioned that they helped anyone who submitted video to their site with soundtracks or images that were not CC to re-work their material and then re-submit.

It is all, for sure, another skill set area :-)

Thanks for list, this topic is on my radar due to current discussion on MLE listserv.
Think it is very important that we increasingly support teachers to use CC resources so that this becomes second-nature for students.
