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

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

The first step in this process is to improve coordination with our existing Affiliates with MOUs or similar agreements. Many of the existing agreements we have with Affiliates are many years old and outdated. CC is pleased to announce a new form Memorandum of Understanding and updated related Policies for our existing official Affiliates, which will replace our existing MOU and other Affiliate-related agreements and policies. CC is posting the new and improved MOU and Policies for comment by existing, official Affiliates of CC. The comment process will close on 18 October 2010.

Information about our new MOU and related 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 new form of MOU by 30 November 2010 to continue affiliation with CC.
