Help Build the Commons – International Creative Commons Fundraising Campaign 2008

Build the Commons , the international Creative Commons Fundraising Campaign for this year, started today (15 October in the United States), launched with the release of the newest CC video A Shared Culture

A Shared Culture – Jesse Dylan



 3.0 United States licence. Full licence information and attributions for works featured in the film are available on the A Shared Culture page.

The short CC licensed video was directed by renowned filmmaker Jesse Dylan (who did Barack Obama Yes We Can campaign video which won an Emmy). A pile of CC people talk about sharing and the commons, peppered with a bunch of Flickr photos and all set to “17 Ghosts II” and “21 Ghosts III” from Nine Inch Nails’ album Ghosts I-IV.

Show your support!  There’s a whole bunch of ways to give. Make a donation, it’ll get you a place on campaign honour roll and on the new ccNetwork. There’s also a range of other goodies that come depending on how much you donate. Or buy something from the CC store.

Tell us all why you CC with a submission to the call for videos. Wear a campaign badge or the donation widget on your website or blog with pride. And most of all, help spread the word!

If you can’t make a direct financial contribution, you could always just watch some of the Creative Commons videos. They are all on Revver so each time they are watched they generate ad revenue, some of which goes back to CC.
