More about Creative Commons Netherlands
Creative Commons Netherlands (CC-NL) is a joint venture between Kennisland, Waag Society and the Institute for Information Law (IViR) in cooperation with Creative Commons International, a not-for-profit organization, founded in 2001, that promotes the creative re-use of intellectual and artistic works.
Creative Commons Netherlands has been working on promoting and supporting the use of Creative Commons Licenses in the Netherlands since 2004. Our activities include workshops, presentations, on and offline support as well as academic research into legal questions raised by the use of the Creative Commons Licenses.
Creative Commons Netherlands is supported by the Dutch Ministry for Education, Culture and Science.
Roadmap Creative Commons Netherlands 2014
CC-NL continues to function as an expertise centre with personal advice. CC-NL offers an interface where individual (non)professional makers, and organisations from the cultural heritage, education and research sector can get answers about copyright issues. These involve questions on open education, open data, open culture and open democracy.
Futhermore, the 4.0 version of the Creative Commons licenses brings several extensive changes from the previous version. In the short term we expect that the change from 3.0 to 4.0 will result in extra requests for information especially from existing users of the licenses.
One of the unique advantages of the alliance of CC-NL’s partners is the direct interaction between scientific research and the daily practice of open content licensing. The Institute for Information Law (IViR) is able to perform cutting-edge research in this area. In 2014 IViR identifies that the periphery of the CC licences are becoming increasingly significant for the use of the CC licenses. IVIR proposes to research whether CC-licences can serve as a model to license other rights than copyright and related rights. Specifically we are looking at the case of publicity and portrait rights.
