CCau is glad to (slightly belatedly) welcome New Zealand to the Creative Commons fold.

On 27 October Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand launched its licences. Headed up by Dr Brian Opie, and operating under the auspices of Te Whāinga Aronui The Council for the Humanities, the launch of CCANZ was one of the principal goals of the New Zealand Government’s National Digital Content Strategy.

The launch took place at the National Library in Wellington. CCau was represented by Dr Anne Fitzgerald, who gave a presentation on the current state of CC internationally.

CCANZ has launched with the CC v3.0 licence – now it’s up to us here in Australia to update our own licences to keep up with our cross-Tasman counsins.
