Project Governance

From Creative Commons
Jump to: navigation, search

Creative Commons software products and technical work are developed as open source projects, and governed as a meritocracy. Our community is structured as a virtual organization where authority is distributed to both volunteer and employed community members as they show their abilities through contributions to the project.

Our governance system has been in large part modeled after the Mozilla project, which operates under a module ownership governance system. You can read more about the way Mozilla defines and uses this system here. However, note that although we have used this as a starting point, Creative Commons will chart its own path and set its own rules. Do not expect the systems to be identical.
