Licensing Executives Society 2012 Winter Meeting
CC CEO Cathy Casserly will speak on "The Global Commons: Sharing Knowledge in a Connected World":
- "Sharing knowledge is a bedrock principle of research. Proponents of the global commons movement view intellectual property and other policy concerns as too often impeding discovery by limiting access to, and re-use of, scientific research. They argue that a global, interoperable and scalable science commons benefits scientific progress as well as scholarship, business, and society in general by creating the largest and most equitably competitive environment for research and innovation. Cathy Casserly will analyze this challenge, highlighting Creative Commons' contribution to the global commons."
