Translation process
1) Initial draft: created by a lawyer, law school students and others who have certain amount of knowledge or skill in English, CC license text, and/or copyright law; 2) a series of close reviews by three others (including two lawyers) who have at least two or more of the following: high fluency in English, close knowledge on CC license texts, and copyright laws of Japan and U.S.; 3) finalization of public comment-ready draft at a conference of three people (two of whom are lawyers) meeting the criteria for the second process. 4) a few more rounds of reviews to hammer out details.

Website: TBD

They are all members of CC Japan

Word choice
1) Licensed Material is translated as ライセンス対象物(subject of license), partly because words corresponding to "material" have other (potentially misleading) connotations. 2) However, where the word "material" was used without the word "Licensed," it is translated as 素材, a word that has a connotation of primary input, or material out of which you make something else as opposed to a finished work or product. 3) "as available" is understood to mean that as (the License Material is) provided (by the Licensor) rather than "while the supplies last" "while the link is not dead"
