This month the Austin Creative Commons group will meet up with the Austin Bloggers group (http://www.austinbloggers.org/) at Cafe Caffeine. Bloggers are one of the largest contributing populations to the Creative Commons.
Anyone with questions about Creative Commons can attend and we'll try to answer any questions or discuss aspects of CC licensing. We will also update each other on the latest news regarding Creative Commons (like the recent Case Study project, and legal decisions supporting the enforcement of free licenses.)
We will meet at Cafe Caffeine on Wednesday, August 20th starting at 7:00.
Creative Commons is a an easy licensing method used by artists, musicians and writers worldwide to allow others to use their work according to a set of guidelines you select, including control over
any profits. It increases the creativity and profile of those who share in the licenses.
The CC Salon is a monthly event focused on building a community of artists and developers around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology. Come each month to meet others who license using Creative Commons technology or work with technology implement it. We try to have presenters, but also openly discuss other CC issues.
We are also looking for artists or presenters who might want to show their work or offer some insight to the commons.
If you're interested in presenting or want more information, e-mail:
