CC Singapore License Draft in Public Discussion

Michelle Thorne, June 23rd, 2008

On behalf of CC Singapore (website), we are pleased to announce that the draft of CC BY-NC-SA adapted to Singaporean law (PDF) is now in public discussion. The CC Singapore team, lead by Anil Samtani and Giorgos Cheliotis and hosted at the Centre for Asia Pacific Technology Law & Policy (CAPTEL), has been working with Creative Commons International to port the licenses to local copyright legislation. A launch event to celebrate Singapore’s completed licensing suite is scheduled in for July 27th.

As part of the public discussion, we warmly invite you to join CC Singapore’s discussion list and share your comments with local and international legal experts.

Thank you and congratulations to CC Singapore!

    That’s great news! Singapore’s building into the creative economy, so having policies that recognize the needs of collective intellectual production is essential.

    Congratulations indeed. It’s a four-year wait (maybe longer?) that’s worth waiting. I think CC Singapore ought to have a blog or a website. Wonder what are the plans to promote CC after the launch.

    Yes, we need a blog. Any volunteers? If you read this contact me at gcheliotis on gmail or just search for giorgos cheliotis.
