Priority Goals 2014

  1. Rights Collecting Society Compatibility (create one or two cases with a conflicting situation i.e. CC publisher is RCS member, confront and find solution)
  2. Preparation of Workshops for artists at the ARCHIVIA conference Wissensturm Linz September 2014 (during Ars Electronica Festival)
  3. Translating CC 4.0 unported and porting to Austrian law frame, if required (2015)
  4. Extend CC usage in Open Government Data initiatives (presentations at Austrian Open Data Conference, etc)

CC Austria Lead Organisation: ALLMENDA

The ALLMENDA cooperative consists of software consultants, radio stations, media designers and legal experts for Free Software who jointly work on various projects. It was founded in 2003 as a successor of the PUBLIC VOICE Lab and was active as osAlliance. Their members support Creative Commons since the CC Austria licenses launch in 2004 with workshops, hosting and communication and have developed Registered Commons, a suite for providing time stamps when registering a work.

Supporting Organisation: FH Vorarlberg

The The Department of Design and Media Based Communication at the Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences is offering teaching and research resources for intermedial design and communication challenges. During 2004-2006, it was managing the Competence Network Media Design, which supported the launch of Creative Commons in Austria at the Ars Electronica in 2004 (with the legendary "Open Source Water Bottles") and the launch of Registered Commons in 2006 at the Wizards of OZ conference in Berlin as a timestamping service for the CC community.
