FairShare Challenges YOU to Support CC!

Melissa Reeder, December 15th, 2008

We’re thrilled to announce the third and final matching challenge of the 2008 annual campaign! This round’s matcher is FairShare, a new service from Attributor. FairShare is putting up $3000 in order to match every single donation (up to $3000) between now and the end of the campaign.

FairShare was previewed at CC’s 2nd Technology Summit on Friday. FairShare is a free service that lets you assign a CC license to your work and receive information on how and where it is shared with others. Results come back as an RSS feed and include information about the percentage of your work re-used, whether a link back exists and if ads are present. Support for Share-Alike and No Derivatives licenses are expected soon. FairShare is currently in beta, and they are looking for help testing http://www.fairshare.cc.

This is a great opportunity to double the value of your contribution to CC. The end of the campaign is quickly approaching and we need your help — donate today!

    I personally use the http://www.copygator.com website, it’s a service already available that does the same thing as fairshare

    1. it’s automated and brings me results instead of me searching for duplicated content. All i had to do was submit my feed and it started monitoring my feed showing me who’s republished my articles on the web.

    2. i get notified by email so it contacts me when it finds copies of my articles online.

    3. i use their image badge feature to alert me directly on my website when my content is being lifted.

    4. it’s a free service
