Creative Commons

Posted by Curtis Miller Curtis Miller

A few years ago I was fortunate to hear a keynote, at the OOPSLA 2003 conference, by Lawrence Lessig about an up-and-coming idea regarding copyright. It was called Creative Commons.

At the time I thought his keynote speech was very good and the idea was intriguing. As you can see, this blog is under a CC(Creative Commons) license. I think that it is a worthy cause and hope that it continues to gain traction in the future.

I am also a big fan of Google as anyone who knows me can attest. Google once again shows what it is made of with a $30,000 donation to the CC cause. This comes during CC's annual fundraising campaign.

If you are interested in donating to CC, then click here.

Also, here is a video about Creative Commons and copyright. It is also a good way to donate to the CC cause. From the CC website

Revver attaches a short ad at the end of each video; when someone clicks on the ad, Revver splits the resulting revenue with the video's creator. It's usually a 50/50 split, but Revver is generously giving Creative Commons 100% of the money our videos make through the end of our fundraising campaign on December 31, 2006.

What are you waiting for? Learn about CC and donate to them at the same time!
