Creative Commons Global Summit 2015
CC's Global Summit brings together our global community of technologists, legal experts, academics, and activists who support free culture and open knowledge shared worldwide.
Taking place every two years around the world, the summit provides CC and the broader open web community an opportunity to gather, share ideas, and advance our efforts.
We are proud to host CC's 2015 Global Summit in Seoul — hope you'll join us!
"The colorful circle symbolizes amalgamation of Knowledge by subject experts coming from diversified domains. Circles represent protective, unity, wholeness, and infinity. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners, the circle is also associated with the number one." — by nareshagrawalart_155
How can I license my work?
