There are too few nonprofit organizations like CC fighting for the digital commons – support our vital leadership with an end of year contribution. Donate today!
CC French project lead Melanie Dulong de Rosnay and Daniele Bourcier
have just published ‘International Commons at the Digital Age – la creation en partage‘, a book with
some valuable chapters on our first experiences with the internationalized CC licenses.
The book was written as a contribution to a day-long event in Paris on
November 19th to celebrate the launch of the French CC licenses.
For this occasion (photographs and some abstracts to follow in these
pages) Melanie had organized several panels at the French National
Assembly debating the merits of the CC approach from a variety of
different perspectives (academia, the publishing industry, politics,
science, the arts). The celebration continued into the wee hours at the
Maison de Metallo in downtown Paris with live music acts, poetry
readings, website presentations and fair trade drinks.
Many thanks to Melanie for all her enthusiasm and her splendid
organization of this event.
