A-==Mini FAQ==-

1. What are we doing here/what is the purpose of this group? We are changing Facebook so it allows us to choose a creative commons licenses for our works (in addition to the old “all rights reserved” license).

2. But, what is Creative Commons? We have this really good and little summary http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/BoRR/BasicInfo

3. Why now? Facebook now is listening to their users. (the reason is explained here http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/Why_Now , so we need to get organized and ask for what we believe will improve FB and Internet.

4. But can we do it? Yes, we think so, and here is an explanation of what could be a way to do it: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/Facebook_Licensing

5. But there’s an problem with the current ToS of Facebook? Yes, we have a problem with the ToS, but as the license given to FB is non-exclusive, we believe we can still do #4. The problem with the license is explained here http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/Facebook_ToS

6. What can I do right now? So you know this is a good thing and you want to help... good, there’s 4 things you can do now:

-You can invite all your fellows CC-fans, we are getting 7000 people here. here’s why http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/Facebook_Group -Also we have a Cause, so you can be there also (and invite other people) http://apps.facebook.com/causes/232592?m=81fdef5b -Help in the wiki and in the forums. -Please Join or make your regional facebook group.

7. How I know what is going on? -we post news every other day.. so stay tuned. -Also, we send a message if something important is happen. -Finally you can ask the administrators. Old News Here: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Facebook_CC_Integration/BoRR/News

CC Growing in facebook

If you saw the new ToS (point 12.3 see http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=67758697570&topic=7569 ) 7000 people is the magic number to gain the possibility of change almost anything. (If we have the chance to change the ToS with 7000 people, then we also have the possibility to include CC)

Building a Strong Movement

The group grew to be the second most biggest CC group on FB. That exciting piece of news also leads to a not so good situation:

The lack of country CC groups and people inside each one.

We have only a little more than 20 regional groups, with the notorious absent of countries like Brazil, Mexico, Germany.. well a lot of really big and not so big countries

And that's a problem, why? there's a lot of CC people there waiting to take part on something that they believe, but they don't know the existence of a local group to do that.. and because of that, they also don't know about this effort that we are making here.

So I would like to propose the following: make your country group if it isn't created yet or join your local CC group.

So we can help us to connect with us. that's really important.

We hope that in the following week instead of 20 groups we will have 100 groups of CC commons and that also will bring attention to Zuckerberg an his people.

What do you say?

These are the CC groups already on FB: please join them

If you want to make one for your country, please check that haven't been made and also I suggest two things: Put the name of the country in the title and make the group 'global' (available to all facebook), so communications among groups can exist.

and last: making a group does not mean you have to lead it :-) but a group can gather people and that's the first step.
