Creative Commons > THE POWER OF OPEN

Open creative commons

The world has experienced an explosion of openness. From individual

artists opening their creations for input from others, to governments

requiring publicly funded works be available to the public, both the spirit

and practice of sharing is gaining momentum and producing results.

Creative Commons began providing licenses for the open sharing of

content only a decade ago. Now more than 400 million CC-licensed works

are available on the Internet, from music and photos, to research !ndings

and entire college courses. Creative Commons created the legal and

technical infrastructure that allows e”ective sharing of knowledge, art and

data by individuals, organizations and governments. More importantly,

millions of creators took advantage of that infrastructure to share work

that enriches the global commons for all humanity.
