Ireland - Affiliate Team Roadmap
Date submitted: 18 May 2011
Timespan of this roadmap: May 2011 - May 2012
Complete list of all members of the Affiliate Team:
Dr Darius Whelan, Public Lead, Lawyer
Dr Louise Crowley, Public Lead, Lawyer
Date of earliest MOU in jurisdiction: 2003
Self-Identified Region: Europe
Why is Creative Commons important for the jurisdiction?
CC provides a user-friendly means of sharing works while reserving some rights
What do you think makes a successful jurisdiction project?
Helpful responses to queries; Improving visibility of CC in the jurisdiction
How do you see the jurisdiction project contributing to the CC Affiliate Network?
Hopefully we will be able to attend conferences and participate in discussions
We currently have the CC-IE e-mail list and have spoken at some conferences, e.g. Mindfield Dublin and CODATA conference in Dublin
We have made useful contacts and will continue to build those contacts.
What are the three most important focus areas on which the Affiliate Team will work during this time period?
1. Focus-area: Finalising Licences version 3.0
2. Focus-area: Promoting CC Licences in Ireland
3. Focus-area: Liaison with other interest groups and other CC jurisdictions
We currently have two Project Leads but once the licences are launched we will consider adding a third and/or fourth person ( a non-lawyer) so that we can move to concentrating on non-legal aspects of the project more.
We have good access to technology
For seminars/ conferences, it should be possible to organise these on our existing premises using existing resources
We will reach out to other CC jurisdictions, e.g. UK and other European teams.
