Creative Commons launches in UK
29 September 2004
Creative Commons is gaining a lot of interest as a new way for authors, artists, musicians, film makers, programmers and others to make their creative works available to the world whilst retaining control over their usage. On 4th Oct, Lawrence Lessig of the Stanford University Law School, a leading light in the intellectual property world and founder of Creative Commons, will give a talk outlining the new Creative Commons licenses for UK users.
Rather than the usual "(c) All Rights Reserved" approach that limits the use that can be made of works, Creative Commons provides a "(cc) Some Rights Reserved" license. Creative individuals can use the Creative Commons website to automatically generate licenses that fit their exact needs. (You can find out more at http://creativecommons.org/learn/artistscorners/)
