CC Austria

First CC Salon in the Alps

Michelle Thorne, October 23rd, 2008

From CC Austria:

We proudly announce the first CC Salon to be held in the Alps in the net
culture labs of the cities Vienna and Dornbirn simultaneously, connected with
a video bridge.

CC licensing has become very popular in Austria and even found its way in
curricula of media design students. Together with the Austrian Chamber of
Commerce, the creative sector association just published 10.000 booklets,
explaining the pitfalls of the copyright in daily creative work, and
suggesting CC as a preferred licensing model.

We would like to welcome guests from surrounded areas. Any other city in the
alps is invited to follow up with a next salon event.

The CC Alps Salon will take place today, October 23, at 1930 CET.

Version 3.0 Austria now goes live!

Patricia Escalera, August 15th, 2008

We are very pleased to announce that Creative Commons Austria has successfully completed the versioning of the ported Creative Commons licensing suite in Austria. Following the versioning of Creative Commons Germany in late July 2008, Version 3.0 of the six standard Creative Commons licenses is now legally and linguistically adapted to Austrian law. A special Thank You to the Legal Project Lead for CC Austria, Dr. Florian Philapitsch, LL.M., who has led the process!

For a more detailed explanation, please see the summary of all significant changes (in German).

Congratulations, CC Austria!
