Michelle Thorne, June 5th, 2008

Today the Nordic jurisdictions Denmark, Finland, and Sweden are joined by CC Norway in offering Creative Commons licenses legally and linguistically adapted to national law.

The CC Norway team is headed by Project Leads Gisle Hannemyr and Peter Lenda, who with Haakon Flage Bratsberg, Thomas Gramstad, Tore Hoel, and Vebjørn Søndersrød, coordinated the license porting process with Creative Commons International and conducted public discussion with local and international legal experts.

The Norwegian licenses, available at Version 3.0, constitute the forty-sixth localized Creative Commons licensing suite.

The launch of the licenses will be celebrated on Friday, June 6th at 10:00am during a press conference at Oslo University College. For more information, please read our press release in English and Norwegian.

Takk, thank you, and congratulations to CC Norway!
