We chose to use a CC license as we need people to recognise and attribute our work, whilst at the same time ensuring that the license is passed on. We cannot use a Noncommercial license, as occasionally our work will be reprinted in commercial publications. — Tim Norton, Communications & Campaigns adviser


The website of the Australian Greens elected members (as at June 2008: Senators Bob Brown, Christine Milne, Rachel Siewert, Sarah Hanson-Young & Scott Ludlam), serves as a repository for all of their work.

Parliamentary debates, media releases, speeches, campaign material, community action systems and other online campaigning tools, GreensMPs allows people to interact directly with the Greens Senators in their work.

Communications and campaigns adviser Tim Norton spoke at the 2006 Creative Commons Australia Industry Forum, in the session for Creative Industries on behalf of his company A New Leaf Media.

This policy allows for all work on the website to be used in other ways, providing it upholds the licensing requirements.
