This page is meant to aggregate information, discussions, arguments and opinions around the Porting Principle prevalent withing the CC license ecology.
Creative Commons as a legal tool started out when the first set of core licenses was released to be used on by the wider internet community, in late 2001. Quite soon after that, in 2002, Creative Commons as an entity took a certain path to disseminate the principles underlying its license suite around the globe. This path was and is absolutely unique amongst the various private order licensing initiatives.
Please note that CC’s policy is not to begin any new porting projects as we are currently preparing for version 4.0. CC encourages the members of its CC Affiliate Network to build a robust, diverse community of users and to undertake community-building activities.
