Last night at the CC Salon in San Francisco, Six Apart presented CC with an impressive donation raised entirely by their LiveJournal community through sales of permanent accounts. Over 600 people bought permanent accounts and chose Creative Commons as a recipient of a portion of that sale.
CC CEO Lawrence Lessig was on hand to accept the check. He praised Six Apart for being one of the very first companies to build a CC license option into content creation software. Six Apart is also one of the first implementers of our licensing widget — integration with Six Apart’s TypePad hosted blogging service was demoed at the Salon.
Thank you Six Apart!
This was a great way to really kick off our 3rd annual fundraising campaign — a truly community driven contribution! Please join Six Apart and the LiveJournal community in sustaining Creative Commons.
