This page is meant to aggregate information, discussions, arguments and opinions around CC's porting project, which is unique among all public licenses.

Creative Commons as a legal standard began with publication of the first suite of licenses in late 2001. In 2002, Creative Commons established a novel approach for disseminating information about its licenses and securing global support. The "porting project" involves the translation and legal adaptation of CC's licenses to the language and copyright laws of particular jurisdictions. As a result of the project, CC has ported licenses in more than 55 jurisdictions, and hosts an astonishing 550+ unique licenses.

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.
