Affiliate Program Enhancements -- Call for Affiliate comments on updated MOU and policies

In an effort to improve our Affiliate program and CC's global reach and impact, Creative Commons is enhancing existing opportunities for individuals and organizations to engage with CC, and creating new ones. Among other things, we aim to improve our infrastructure so that we can better support the efforts of our Affiliates and their collaboration, with CC directly as well as between themselves and their jurisdictions and regions.

The first step in this process is to improve coordination with our existing Affiliates who have MOUs or similar agreements already in place. Many if not most of those agreements are outdated. We believe that updating, standardizing and modularizing these agreements will better serve CC and the Affiliates. Doing so provides a clearer picture of shared responsibilities and opportunities for improving our outreach, accountability, and opportunities for accomplishing shared goals like community building.

CC is pleased to post its updated Memorandum of Understanding and updated related Policies, for comment by our existing official Affiliates. These will replace our existing MOU and other Affiliate-related agreements and policies when finalized later this month. The comment process will close on 18 October 2010.

Information about our updated MOU and policies can be found on our MOU and Policies Summary Page. We encourage you to take a look at these documents and share your feedback. Please note that all Affiliates are expected to transition to the updated MOU by 24 November 2010.
