One of the great enablers for the global commons movement is the Creative Commons organization with its tools, affiliates and broader community. The Creative Commons licensing approach and its adoption by many opened up a new world for sharing creative works, music, literature, images and even electronic schematics, enabling and empowering more creators and even more users. It is our privilege to be hosts to the European regional group of Creative Commons Affiliates (CC Europe) who will gather for a meeting during CommonsFest. The participants of this meeting are based all over the region, from the Netherlands to Portugal, Turkey and Ukraine.
We hope we can contribute in our way to the great work of this community.
