More about Creative Commons Netherlands

Creative Commons Netherlands (CC-NL) is a joint venture between Kennisland, Waag Society and the Institute for Information Law (IViR) in cooperation with Creative Commons International, a not-for-profit organisation, founded in 2001, that promotes the creative re-use of intellectual and artistic works One of the unique advantages of the alliance of CC-NL’s partners is the direct interaction between scientific research and the daily practice of open content licensing. The Institute for Information Law (IViR) is able to perform cutting-edge research in this area.

Creative Commons Netherlands has been working on promoting and supporting the use of Creative Commons Licenses in the Netherlands since 2004. Our activities include workshops, presentations, on and offline support as well as academic research into legal questions raised by the use of the Creative Commons Licenses.

Goals of Creative Commons Netherlands

CC-NL functions as an expertise centre. CC-NL offers an interface where individual (non)professional makers, and organisations from the cultural heritage, education and research sector can get answers about copyright issues. These involve questions on open education, open data, open culture and open democracy.
