Live from Harvard!

I always wanted to say that.

I will be blogging some of the hottest news from the Creative Commons summit. The first news is that the updated Creative Commons UK site is now live.

Some other interesting news is that the Creative commons generic licence will soon become the U.S licence, while there will be a generic licence that is WIPO compliant. This is a very welcome development as it helps to stress the international nature of the movement.

The most memorable snippet from the first day was the introductory videos from John Perry Barlow and Jack Valenti. Yes, you read correctly, Jack Valenti supports Creative Commons. Watch out for flying pigs.

So far there has been some interesting discussion about the international aspects of the movement. Is international iCommons an international organisation? Should it operate as one? Who chooses the representatives? What legitimacy do I have to be here?
