Patricia Escalera, July 25th, 2008

We are delighted to announce the successful localization of the Creative Commons licenses in Singapore, the 47th worldwide to do so. The CC Singapore team, led by Associate Professor Samtani Anil and Assistant Professor Giorgios Cheliotis, has worked under the auspices of the Centre for Asia Pacific Technology Law & Policy (CAPTEL) and in collaboration with Creative Commons International to port the licenses to Singaporean law.

The launch event will be celebrated on Sunday, July 27, at the International Symposium on Electronic Art. The ceremony will be followed by several panels organized by CATPEL and Creative Commons Singapore on copyright issues in digital media and a keynote address from Professor Lawrence Lessig. For more in information we invite you to read our press release.

Congratulations, CC Singapore!
