Creative Commons Belgium is currently rebooting the Belgian affiliation. Since the start of 2012 the Belgian affiliation has been reanimated by a brand new team. The new CC-BE team consists of both people from the former formation and some fresh blood. To maximize our potential we've decided to team up with the Belgian chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation. As CC Belgium and OKFN Belgium are practically pursuing the same goals of promotion and education concerning "the power of open" we concluded that we could mutually benefit from an extensive form of collaboration. In practice this means that CC Belgium will constitute a new workgroup within the organization of OKFN Belgium and of course we are looking for joint projects wherever possible. For the remainder of 2012 CC Belgium will focus on setting up an organizational structure and a decent informative website. We are always looking to expand and consolidate our network and if anyone might be interested to make a contribution to the CC Belgium project, you are more then welcome to join our team.

CC Belgium would like to thank Prof. Alain Strowel (University of St-Louis, Brussels) for his assistance and Pascal Callant for his former role as Public Project Lead. The team is indebted to Philippe Laurent and Loïc Bodson from IPR department and CRID for their support and legal expertise. The Dutch version was prepared by Mélanie Carly, researcher at CIR (Centrum voor Intellectuele Rechten), University of Leuven.
