Welcome to the Creative Commons Case Studies project!

Creative Commons projects are found across the globe, with licenses used by private individuals to large corporations. The stories on this site tell of some of the thousands of individuals and organisations who use CC licenses on a daily basis for a multitude of purposes across a variety of content. The Case Studies project is initiated in conjunction with Creative Commons Australia. Our goal is to create a community-powered system for qualitatively measuring the impact of Creative Commons around the world.
