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!



Our World Wide Web Consortium representative Ben Adida will be present at meetings concurrent with the consortium’s tenth anniversary celebration.

Ben has been doing important work to standardize embedding RDF metadata in HTML (I find the RDF/A proposal particularly compelling).

Services like the Creative Commons search engine build on RDF metadata describing licensed works that you get automatically when you choose a license. The W3C’s RDF-in-HTML standardization efforts promise to increase the value of CC metadata, opening paths to integration with many new applications.
