We are the kaitiaki of the New Zealand CC licences that enable the voluntary sharing of copyright material in Aotearoa. We're a kiwi remix on an international movement toward open access licensing and are here to support Creative Commons in New Zealand.


Priorities for 2012

- Promoting CC policies and best practice in the context of NZGOAL, education institutions and cultural institutions

- Strengthening ties with other CC jurisdiction projects and HQ

- Planning for future sustainability

Deliverables (12 month forecast)

It continues to be CCANZ's aim in 2012 to partner with other institutions and sector groups in order to create awareness and promote CC more effectively to more communities. Now that the project has re-established the basics, we should be using that base to see key institutions take up Creative Commons 'best practice' and/or Creative Commons policies. The way to best maximise our current position is to concentrate on helping institutions implement the tools on mass. We also have the timely fortune of being able to leverage of the open data and open government policy work which is driving uptake for the public sector.

Web resources

We are rebuilding our jurisdiction website on WordPress. The new version will make it easier for us to publish resources and communicate information clearly. (Julian Apatu [RSNZ], Richard Best [Legal Team] and Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Maintaining our web presence from day to day is essential and will continue to be a part of the Public Lead’s key activities. Expanding CCANZ’s social media bases and channeling their admin through one web tool will be the next step. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Affiliate Network Partnerships

Activities could include joint creation/aggregation of useful outreach resources; jointly run online workshops and seminars; competitions organised and run over multiple jurisdictions; partnering up with another CC project dealing with CC licensing in regards to national events such as disaster relief, traveling festivals, environmental projects or unique communities of interest. To be arranged in consultation with the Asia Pacific Regional Manager. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Helping Facilitate CC related research

Non financial support for student research on CC related topics. To be initiated through VUW and UA faculties. (Susy Frankel [Legal Team] and Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

The goal of a NZ licence use study (rather than a simple uptake study) will be completed. A sample section of licence use in NZ can be taken and examined for wording, attribution requirements, licence scope and use of licence metadata. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Engaging the community

Public Meetups will continue to be held in 2012. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Update: CC Meetup 'Creative Commons in Schools' in April 2012

State Agencies and NZGOAL

The project will continue to support work in and around the New Zealand Government Open Access and Licensing Framework by helping monitor uptake; building on case studies provided by OpenNZ; promoting the newly released Declaration on Open and Transparent Government; and continuing to engage with Agencies wanting to apply CC licences. (Keitha Booth [Advisory Panel], Richard Best [Legal Team] and (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

CC and the Royal Society of New Zealand

More activities will be mapped out to engage the Society with NZGOAL and its implications for 'open science' and 'free culture', and to embed CC practice into the Society where appropriate. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Update: Chatshop session given to staff in February, with CC licensing of some expert publications and school science challenge guides as the initial result

Mix and Mash

We will hope to partner with Digital NZ once more should they hold the Mix and Mash initiative in 2012. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Workshops and Presentations

Staff sessions for tertiary faculty need to be offered in the South Island. Follow-up student sessions can be rolled out for North Island institutions who have received staff sessions in 2011. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Update: February presentation given to University of Otago's heads of departments for the 'Open Minds' Series, and a workshop given to University of Otago Libraries staff as professional development. March workshop given to Victoria University of Wellington School of English, Film, Theatre, and Media Studies staff.

CC and Tertiary

We've received some good feedback so far about our real potential to help the NZ universities speak to 'each other' on the issue of open access, rather than in silos. More on this to come.

Update: Creative Commons 'Open Research and OER in Tertiary' event at the July 2012 NetHui conference

CC and Education

CCANZ will continue to work directly with the Ministry of Education on delivering support and regional workshops for schools on Creative Commons and Creative Commons Policies. (Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

The project will also maintain its relationship with the OER Foundation and support its facilitation of the OERu and the Open Content Licensing for Educators workshops. (Wayne Mackintosh [Advisory Panel] Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])

Update: CCANZ will represent Asia Pacific Jurisdictions in April at the Asia Pacific Regional Forum on Policy and Practices in OER

Update: The project has been involved in the New Zealand Transport Agency's 'Safer Journeys for Teens' remix competition for schools, and will serve on the judging panel.

Indigenous knowledge

In 2008, Professor Susy Frankel from the CCANZ Legal Team and Huhana Rokx from the Council for the Humanities facilitated some discussion meetings on Māori knowledge and how it relates to the application of CC licences. It was proposed at the time that the project should explore the matter further after relevant processes within the Waitangi Tribunal had played out. Discussions among CCANZ team members will kick off again in late 2011. (Susy Frankel [Legal Team], Hinerangi Himiona [Advisory Panel] and Jane Hornibrook [Public Lead])


Most of the Creative Commons stakeholders and community groups in New Zealand could be categorised under the following:

Government. Agencies and staff who advocate for ‘open government’ and the principles of open access in public sector information.

Education. Institutions and projects promoting E-Learning and open educational resources.

Creators and/or self publishers. Professional and non-professional creators who use open access as part of new business models and/or believe in free culture as a motivating cause.

Private business. On and offline businesses who utilise open access as part of their strategic operation.

Cultural institutions. Community spaces and archives who see the benefits of open access for the management of material and the greater good of the community.

Māori knowledge communities. Those vested in the study of and advocacy for Mātauranga Māori.

Learned societies, Research Organisations, Think Tanks and Professional Bodies. Such as Crown Research Institutes and Societies who see open access licensing as a stimulus to innovation.

Social commentators. Those maintaining that open access and shared culture benefits our society as a whole in many ways.

We try to strengthen ties with these communities by pulling in people from diverse areas on our Panel, and by collaborating with other projects. We have an online CC community on our website which you can view here.

The Royal Society of New Zealand maintains a contract with the Ministry for Research Science and Technology to facilitate an environment where Creative Commons can achieve its aims in exchange for a three-year funding grant from 2010–2013. We will be re-examining sustainability at the first Panel Meeting of 2012.

Regional Collaboration

We're part of a fabulous jurisdiction group in the Asia Pacific region and recently enjoyed a CC Asia Pacific conference hosted by CC Korea. There is a regional newsletter.

CCANZ is very indebted to CC Australia for their assistance over the years, and for contributing their knowledge on our inaugural Advisory Panel.
