Derivative work for speakers, or a guide on how to use my content

I realize I’ve never clarified what you can or cannot do with my slides and my talks. So here’s a clarification for anyone that wishes to inspire themselves from my work (aka derivative works) or reuse them.

I do not release my presentations, the videos or the content / slides under any kind of open-source license. Not even creative commons. Presentations take a while to build, structure and mature, and this cost me money. If you’re going to use them, you’re effectively using my work.

Now, I’m not anal about how you use the content, it’s written to benefit the community. However, ff you want to create a derivative work, or even re-present my presentations, I’m happy for you to do so provided the following conditions are met:

  • The original work author is to be named (that’s me), together with my company name (that’s Caffeine IT).
  • It would be terribly appreciated to link to the original content, or my blog, or both.
  • You notify me that you’re going to use the content, or created a derivative work.

If you have any issue with any of that, don’t hesitate to send me an email we can chat about it.
