Speaking tonight – CC Salon

Just a reminder, I’ll be heading to London for the CC Salon to speak about my recent report, funded by Eduserv, on open content and the cultural heritage sector in the United Kingdom.

The report and appendices are available here.

CC-Salon London returns with our final event of 2007, for more discussion and debate on the subjects of art, technology, copyright and free culture.

This time round we’ll be joined by Jordan Hatcher, a lawyer and legal consultant specialising in intellectual property and technology law, who will present and discuss his work on a new report entitled “Snapshot study on the use of open content licences in the UK cultural heritage sector”. This study primarily examines the use of the Creative Archive (CA) and Creative Commons (CC) licences among UK museums, libraries, galleries, and archives.The key objective has been to get a snapshot of current licensing practices in this area in 2007, and Jordan will report on his findings.

We’ve got loads more events planned for the new year, including talks, discussions and parties. Visit our website for more information:

The Salon will be held from 7PM – 11PM at: The Crown and Anchor, 22, Neal St, Covent Garden London WC2H 9PS, on the 20th of November 2007.

The event is open to all with no registration, but if you like, you can register on our Facebook or Upcoming events:
