Creative Commons Australia, through its stewardship of the Creative Commons licences in Australia, plays a leading role in enabling copyright to be actively managed to give effect to Open Access initiatives.
Since Creative Commons was launched in Australia in 2005, we have supported the use of the Creative Commons licences in the creative sector, on government information and data, and in the educational and research sectors, and have contributed to the implementation of policies and practices for furthering the digital economy.
Through October and November 2012, CC Australia is presenting a 4-part seminar series on Creative Commons and the Digital Economy. The seminars are designed for those who wish to actively and legally facilitate better access to and reuse of the extensive range of information and data products, materials and works protected by copyright.
Come and be informed on how we can explore more diverse models for innovation, and how you can be part of this movement towards greater development and engagement.
Seminar 1 – 5 October – Copyright and Open Content Licensing: the role of the Creative Commons licences
Seminar 2 – 19 October – CC in the Creative sectors and emerging business models; How to use the CC licences – application, search and attribution
Seminar 3 – 2 November – CC in Education (incl. OER and MOOCs) and Research
Seminar 4 – 16 November – CC and Government information and data – Australian and International developments
