Creative Commons is celebrating 10 years of helping artists, writers, technologist, and other creators share our knowledge and creativity with the world. We've been able to maximize our digital creativity, sharing, and innovation. For example, governments are using Creative Commons for their open data portals.

Earlier this year, the UC Santa Cruz library adopted a Creative Commons (CC-BY) license for all of its content. YouTube now has over 4 million videos available under Creative Commons, allowing everyone to remix and edit the videos.

"If you want to give people the right to share, use, and even build upon a work you’ve created, you should consider publishing it under a Creative Commons license." —Creative Commons

Join Creative Commons during a 10 day celebration of their mission and worldwide successes from December 7-16. Tell us how you plan on celebrating and then find out more about the anniversary activities.



If you're near Research Triangle Park (RTP) in North Carolina on the evening of December 12, join Red Hat, New Kind, and opensource.com for the Triangle Creative Commons 10-year celebration.
