    Two suggestions to improve clarity of copyright licenses/terms in Canvas:

     

    #1 For items in Canvas Commons - provide some guidance on what the “Copyrighted” license means, similar to that for the Public Domain and Creative Commons licenses on the "What types of content licenses are available?" page. (The Canvas Terms of Service suggest some additional info.) Right now it's unclear what "Copyrighted" means. The Terms of Service suggest there is an implied license to re-use within Canvas, but this is unclear.

     

    #2 Other license types (besides Copyrighted) currently are all hyperlinked in the upper right hand corner of the item itself in Canvas Commons. It would be helpful to have that for Copyrighted too.
