Refining Copyright with Creative Commons

OSCON 2007

Jon Phillips, Nathan Yergler

July 25, 2007


Founded in 2001, Creative Commons is a non-profit dedicated to two purposes: developing a middle ground, "some rights reserved" approach to copyright, and lowering the transaction cost associated with the reuse of creative works.

This talk will provide attendees with an overview of Creative Commons' recent activities and a vision for how Creative Commons can help content creators refine their copyright. Topics covered will include background on CC, the 3.0 licenses, why metadata matters and how everyone can use it, and an overview of the tools and technologies we're working on to continue both pieces of our mission.
