Greetings Open Education Colleagues:Creative Commons has started its annual fund raising drive.
Dear Open Colleagues,
There are over half a billion pieces of Creative Commonsâ€“licensed content in the world. Thatâ€™s an impressive number, but it only hints at how powerful and widespread CC licenses have become.
The real impact is in the stories of how people like you use CC licenses. When you use a CC-licensed textbook in a course or share your latest research article under CC, youâ€™re a part of the story of CCâ€™s impact in the world. Weâ€™re proud to share in this amazing journey with you.
Today, weâ€™re excited to launch Team Open, a new initiative of our staff and community. Weâ€™ve been spending the past few months talking to the CC community, looking for its favorite stories of how CC licenses benefit real people. Youâ€™ll meet a young scientist fighting cancer with free research, an entrepreneur whoâ€™s putting the public back in public domain, and a quirky musician whoâ€™s built his career on giving music away. We hope these stories inspire you, and we hope you feel inspired to share them with your friends and colleagues.
CC is more than a license to share; itâ€™s a license for all of us to create a better world. Please join Team Open by making a donation today.
