CC Salon SF is looking for a new home

Allison Domicone, January 15th, 2009

Do you or someone you know have a free space in San Francisco that CC could take over for a few hours in the evening once every two months? It could be anything from a bookstore back room to a gallery to a roomy office space – so long as it can comfortably accommodate up to 40 or 50 people and is conducive to discussion and presentations (A/V and mic setup are necessary; internet access is ideal).

The Creative Commons Salon allows us to put a face on CC and to build a community around the shared ideals of free and participatory culture, so if you’re excited about helping this movement grow, please consider showing some love by tapping into your network of contacts, friends, and colleagues to see if anyone might be willing to support CC by offering up space for our salon.

We’re also considering hosting salons once a year in the East Bay and the South Bay, so let us know if you’d be interested in attending or if you know of an available space.

Please email salon[at]creativecommons.org with any ideas or suggestions.

Cameron Parkins, November 3rd, 2008

Those in the Bay Area take note – on Nov 7 and 8 (this Fri/Sat) a great event is happening at UC Berkeley titled Takeovers & Makeovers: Artistic Appropriation, Fair Use, and Copyright in the Digital Age. Focusing on “appropriation rights in the digital era”, the event will feature “artists, lawyers, art historians, and representatives from the information technology community to discuss the changing field of appropriation art in the wake of the emergence of new digital media technologies that have radically altered access to and manipulation of information.” Our own Virginia Rutledge will be speaking, along with a slew of preeminent thinkers in the world of copyright including Fred von Lohmann, Rick Prelinger, and Jason Schultz.


Where: Berkeley Art Museum Theater
When: 11/7 (10AM – 4:30PM), 11/8 (10AM – 4PM)
Price: FREE and Open to The Public (No Registration Required)
