Commons advocates in India now have a localized version of Creative Commons licenses to use with today’s launch of the Creative Commons India project.
Adding Creative Commons India, 35 jurisdictions around the world to date will have localized CC’s “some rights reserved” licenses and adapted this form of licensing system.
The project celebrated its official launch today at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Bombay. The launch is part of Asia’s largest technology festival held in Mumbai – Techfest. Now in its tenth year, the two day festival offers a smattering of workshops, exhibitions and lectures to students to explore advances and opportunities in modern science and technology.
The launch will kick off at 4 p.m. in the IIT Bombay’s auditorium in Mumbai. Outside of this event, there will also be two parallel workshops offered as part of Techfest 2007 on Creative Commons: “Do We Need Remix?” and “Sharing is Creating” on January 26-27.
