Safe Creative wants to double your donation

Melissa Reeder, October 20th, 2008

Last Wednesday we launched the 2008 fundraising campaign, with the goal of raising $500,000 by the end of the year. I know — times are hard and that’s a lot of money. So, in order to give you more “bang for your buck,” so to speak, we’ve teamed up with Safe Creative to give you a way to double the value of your contribution. For the next 2 weeks, Safe Creative will be matching every donation dollar for dollar — up to $4000.

Safe Creative is a very cool project working to build a global intellectual property registry for creators to use (for free) to accredit the rights of their work. When you register your work with Safe Creative, you are given the option to CC license your work. So, if you want to register your work, which helps protect you as the creator, check them out. For more information (besides their website) check out the presentation that they gave at CC’s inaugural Tech Summit. We couldn’t be more excited to have them participate in this campaign — continuing to show the world their support for Creative Commons and for a global sharing culture. Show your support too by giving today!

  1. Congratulations to this deal supporting the campaign. Yes, we also need registries to improve trust and security in licensing.

    Yet there are other registries, which are not funded by venture capital, such as Registered Commons, which we launched in 2006. Set up as a public-private partnership in Europe, this registry is targeting the professional creative users.

    It’s great to support Creative Commons and are happy to actively collaborate together with Registered Commons, Creative Commons and other initiatives to make online registries really useful for all kinds of users.
