Support copyright’s center

Filed under: open — Wendy @ 10:17 pm

Much of our culture comes from the fuzzy edges of copyright, not its exclusive domain of all-rights-reserved. Two new initiatives let you help show how creativity thrives without exclusivity, and how it can be hindered by exclusive rights.

Creative Commons moving images contest: Create (and license under a Creative Commons license) a short film explaining the Creative Commons mission. The best entry wins a Mac G2.

Public Knowledge calls for public domain stories: If you’ve drawn from the public domain, or struggled with licensing permissions for your own creative work, share your stories. Help us explain the costs of copyright in human terms.
