What is Creative Commons(CC)?

In the internet age, CC is a new license (copyright) system based on the premise of free dissemination and sharing of such creative works as text, photos, graphics, source code, music, technology and so on.

Creative Commons is an international agency with the mission of spreading Creative Commons licenses throughout the globe. Currently, the Creative Commons license has been implemented in over 70 nations, and the system has been adopted by global sites for creative sharing such as YouTube and Flickr (and of course, Loftwork).

Currently, over five hundred million works are open to the public based on CC licenses. This open and creative way of thinking is rapidly permeating the globe.

For three days in September, the Creative Commons community will convene in Warsaw, Poland, for the Creative Commons Global Summit 2011.
It will bring together the CC Affiliate Network, CC board and staff, key stakeholders and many others to engage strategically on issues related to the future of our shared commons, to renew and further build CC’s vital community, to collaborate on mutual projects and initiatives, and to celebrate our successes as we head towards the end of our first decade together.

Poster Competition

Theme: “Powering an Open Future”

For almost ten years, Creative Commons (CC) has been the leader in providing open tools and licensing options designed to foster productivity and collaboration. In that time we have gone from an idea to a global leader in sharing culture, with over 500 million works worldwide now available under a CC license. CC plays a key role in creating a balance between the reality of the Internet and the reality of copyright laws.

The Creative Commons Global Summit 2011 provides an opportunity for volunteers, industry leaders and practitioners of the worldwide open content licensing movement will explore and showcase the past, present and future of Creative Commons, copyright and free culture. It will be an event focused on sharing, openness and collaboration, with an eye towards setting the path for the Creative Commons community over its next 10 years.
