Microsoft jumps in to put us over the top!

Melissa Reeder, December 30th, 2008

We’ve just gotten word that Microsoft has upped its pledge by $15,000 to put us over the top for the year. Microsoft has been a corporate sponsor of Creative Commons for the past 4 years and we’re delighted to have their continued support.

    “How long before Creative Commons becomes Microsoft Commons and we’re back where we started?” – Negative speculation about a concept that you clearly do not understand will get you nowhere.

    A simple thank you Microsoft, You actually surprised me by contributing in a positive way to something that I believe in, Is all that’s needed here.

    Of course there could be a hidden agenda but the current licenses can’t be edited by Microsoft.
    The idea behind creative commons is simple :

    “Creative Commons provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. You can use CC to change your copyright terms from “All Rights Reserved” to “Some Rights Reserved.””

    So please bear that in mind.

    Well done creative commons!
    Keep up the valuable work and long may it continue!

    This is a drop in the bucket for Microsoft. Wait till Microsoft starts asserting control on Creative Commons.
