I don't believe this project of the Canadian Internet Policy and Public
Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) has yet received the attention it deserves.
"The Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC) was
established at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law in the fall of
2003. It is the first legal clinic of its kind in Canada."
"The development of a Canadian Creative Commons license is aimed at
facilitating the development of online resources to enable creators to
better understand and manage their digital rights in Canada."
The Creative Commons licenses are subject-matter independent agreements
that accomplish for non-software works what Free/Libre and Open Source
Software licenses accomplish for software. This allows all types of
creators to join the "commons-based peer production" movement as peers in
this very interesting creative process. It is great to see this
generalization happening and hope that creators of all types will continue
to make connections.
If you are a creator, law student, or journalist you should go to the
iCommons project and learn more.
