Creative Commons is raising awareness about the importance of open content issues in the world of science, art, education and information which supports public needs and creative potentials as well as their influences in local and global sharing in improving. The success of the project depends on porting the CC licenses, promoting and assisting in their adoption by intellectual community, cultural, educational and governmental institutions. Porting, promoting and adopting the licenses support national and international intellectual interaction and open access to the material of the greatest interest for the contemporary world.
Being involved in the CC Network, CC Serbia is obviously open for contribution and collaboration in any CC issue, including discussions, meetings or mutual actions and initiatives.
Bringing together creators from various backgrounds, Wikimedia Serbia is connected with universities, NGOs, activists, media and some of governmental institutions.

Sustainability and Scalability
As an experienced team working on the same issue a few years ago, we don't expect big challenges and we are able to communicate with the CC Affiliate Network via email list(s) and CC Serbia blog aggregated on the http://planet.creativecommons.org/ or during the formal/informal meetings in the phase of the project progress.
We are able to support other jurisdiction's activities sharing our experience on the same issue and other jurisdictions can support our activities sharing their experience on the same issue.
The Serbian language is specific with its two scripts/alphabets (Cyrillic and Latin). The Serbian Cyrillic script is officially in use, but we promote the issue in two scripts (the difference appears only in writing). The licenses are available in both, Cyrillic (Serbian: српски) and Latin (Serbian: srpski latinica). There is not CC0 yet, but it will be also translated in both, Serbian Cyrillic and Serbian Latin (more in use by ethnic minorities).
