you are cordially invited to the first regional meeting of the European affiliates to discuss the ongoing 4.0 revision of the CC license suite. We will meet on the 1st of May in Berlin together with Diane Peters from Creative Commons, who will talk about the work, the rationale behind the first 4.0 draft, as well as lead a coordinate discussion of that draft, drawing on the expertise of the European affiliates participating.
Participation is open for all affiliates and while it's especially relevant for those of you who are legal leads in your jurisdiction, participation would also be welcome from others in an affiliate team, as many of the topics covered in the discussion would be relevant in much of the public communication about Creative Commons.
Dinner the day before
For the hungry affiliate already in Berlin on April 30th, we have made a reservation at 20:00 hours for 12 people at a quaint eatery named "Max & Moritz" in the district of Kreuzberg, Oranienstraße 162 (OSM: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=52.50252&lon=13.413967&zoom=18&layers=M). The nearest subway station is "Moritzplatz" on the U8 line, then just walk down Oranienstraße eastwards. The only caveat is, they don't accept credit cards or EC cards. See you there ...

On the day after the meeting, on the 2nd of May, the Re:Publica event will open. We'll aim to do something CC at the event, but it might only be a session or two, depending on the interest and other activities. Of some interest might be the co:funding conference which takes place on the 4th of May, to which participants of Re:Publica gets free access. The co:funding conference focuses on crowdfunding and crowdinvestment for creative projects.
We'll be in the conference room of the the Pegasus Hostel, located at Str. der Pariser Kommune 35 in Berlin. The closest subway stop to this is Weberwiese along line U5, from where you can reach Alexanderplatz in two stops.
How to prepare
In order to prepare for the meeting, it's useful to keep yourself updated on the 4.0 process by following the wiki: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/4.0 You should also pay attention to the emails sent to the affiliates list, as they will contain information about current and upcoming drafts of the license. Please pay particular attention to review the first consultation draft of the license that will be published by then. To the extent possible, it would be useful if you can organize to receive feedback from legal scholars as well as the public in your jurisdiction to be able to take their considerations in mind when attending the meeting, and deliver them in the discussion or in the roundtable feedback.
