More about Luxcommons


When the Creative Commons Licences got more and more traction in Luxembourg, the Luxcommons non-profit was founded in 2005. It’s goals are the promotion, research and development of Open Content. Leading innovation in intellectual property is a strategic social, cultural and economic objective. Strong multilingual competences and thoroughly multi-national personnel give Luxcommons an unbiased european perspective. Luxcommons’ first instrument of choice is the Creative Commons Licence. Thanks to funding from “2007, Luxembourg and Greater Region, Cultural Capital of Europe,” the National Cultural Fund and with the Support of the Technoport Incubator (an initiative of the Henri Tudor Research Center), Luxcommons was able to start transposing the CC 3.0 Licence to the Luxembourg jurisdiction. For the future, a stronger linking of similar initiatives in the Greater Region and stronger tie-ins with institutional partners is sought to keep the Luxembourgish CC project on stable footing.
