Join Creative Commons for a discussion on the value of copyright and open innovation in the digital age
Launch reception of The Power of Open
Creative Commons is launching The Power of Open, a book that highlights the role of copyright, content sharing and collaboration in driving innovation in the digital age, featuring case studies of leading scientists, educators, artists and entrepreneurs who have benefited from Creative Commons' tools. Copyright was created long before the emergence of the Internet, and can make it hard for Internet users to legally share content, and for content owners to protect their intellectual property on the Web.
At the launch event, Creative Commons will offer an introduction to The Power of Open, followed by presentations by Creative Commons CEO, Cathy Casserly, IntraHealth Special Partnership, Heather LaGarde and Global Voices Online Co-founder, Rebecca MacKinnon on the importance of content sharing and collaboration for the the digital economy. The discussion will be followed by a hosted cocktail reception.
