2012 has been a very successful year for CC in Australia. We’ve seen the CC licences adopted for the Queensland Police data website, Geoscience Australia Landsat 8 images, the Australian Government’s Vocational Education and Training database website, the Australian Electoral Commission website, ABC’s 80 Days project, and more recently, the Victorian Government’s data website – data.vic.gov.au.
We ran a day-long Creative Commons seminar in Melbourne, and a comprehensive series of seminars – CC and the Digital Economy – covering CC use in the education, research, government, creative and cultural sectors in Brisbane, among other consultations, presentations and workshops about CC throughout the year. We also participated in the Creative Commons Asia Pacific Regional meeting and conference in Jakarta, Indonesia, and enjoyed meeting our CC colleagues at the launch of CC Indonesia.
For those who have been in contact with us, attended our seminars or adopted CC licensing, thank you for your support. All we can say is watch this space in 2013! We’ll be enjoying the Christmas break from 22 December 2012 and will be back on deck on 2 January 2013.
We look forward to the new year and getting more traction on all things CC!Image: ‘The magic of Christmas bokeh‘ by Kevin Dooley, licensed under CC BY 2.0 Generic.
