Philippine Launch Celebration: a vibrant member of the global commons

Michelle Thorne, January 13th, 2008

Following the unveiling of the Philippine localized Creative Commons licenses in December, citizens will gather on January 14th in Manila to celebrate in full the public launch of the country’s completed licenses and its strides towards fostering the global commons movement. The launch activities are scheduled to take place from 1:00pm to 9:00pm at the Arellano University School of Law.

Highlights include: an orientation to projects from the Philippine Commons, a local initiative to promote alternative licensing, free and open source software, open education, and free culture; the public presentation of the CC Philippine Licensing Suite Version 3.0, which has been available online since its soft launch December 15, 2007; and the CC Philippines Concert featuring more than six local rock bands.
