With the advent of the digital revolution and the Internet, it is
suddenly possible to work collaboratively across contexts and to
create new, derivative or collective works on a global level. This
presents an opportunity for an enormous and unprecedented stimulation of
creativity and production of knowledge.
New licensing models have been created to help this collaborative
creation. Open licenses such as Creative Commons provide ways for
creators and distributors to work together. Such collaboration has
proven itself fruitful also economically: open licensing has been
successfully used by music businesses, movie producers, book publishers
and media companies.
How is business created around open licensing? What benefits does the
Creative Commons model provide for public broadcasting and archiving?
How open licensing changes the production of cultural works? How does
the common Nordic legal environment affect re-use of cultural works?
Nordic Cultural Commons Conference provides insight into these
questions. Bringing together all Nordic Creative Commons scholars and
practitioners, it is also a great opportunity to meet and discuss the
latest open content practices and ideas.
Our speakers include Mike Linksvayer (Creative Commons), John Buckman
(Magnatune), Nicklas Lundblad (Google) and Paul Gerhardt (BBC Creative
