FGV and Creative Commons also plan to begin work with the Brazilian Minister of Culture, world-renowned musician Gilberto Gil (!), to use the licenses to expand access to Brazilian culture.

Read the first porting (for readers of Portuguese).

Read the excellent annotation of the first porting (by project lead Ronaldo Lemos, in English).

Join the discussion.
