Affiliate Program Enhancements

Step 1: Call for Affiliate comments on updated MOU and policies

In an effort to improve our CC Affiliate Network and program, and CC's global reach and impact, Creative Commons is enhancing existing opportunities for individuals and organizations to engage with CC as well as 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 throughout their jurisdiction and region.

The first step in this process is to improve our relationship with existing Affiliates who have MOUs or similar agreements already in place. Many if not most of those agreements are outdated in at least some respects. We believe that updating, standardizing and modularizing these agreements will better serve CC and the Affiliates. Doing so will provide a clearer picture of shared responsibilities and opportunities for improving our outreach, accountability, and 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. The comment process will close on 31 October 2010.

We encourage you to take a look at these documents and share your feedback on the wiki's discussion pages. Please note that our target is to have all Affiliates wishing to continue their affiliation with CC transitioned to a new MOU by 6 December 2010.

About Affiliate Teams and Resources Agreements and Policies Legal Tools and Localization

In Discussion


Important Note About License Porting CC has established a policy against porting of its licenses in jurisdictions prior to the establishment of a robust, local community outreach program. CC approves such proposals only after a thorough review of the rationale and need for that localization. Please consider participating in our unofficial license translation program instead, coming soon. Contact CC to learn more.
