Microsoft Office add-in released

Microsoft and Creative Commons have teamed up to release the Creative Commons add-in for Microsoft Office, a copyright licensing tool that enables the easy addition of Creative Commons licenses to works created in popular Microsoft Office applications. The wizard-type add-in allows you to select a CC license directly from the File menu, the licence terms are embedded electronically and visually in Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents.

The add-in is available free of charge from Microsoft Office Online.


Jamendo storms Amsterdam and San Francisco

This week CC music company Jamendo is presenting at a raft of conferences. CTO Sylvain Zimmer is in Amsterdam presenting at “Holland Open Conference” and the “Digital Pioneers Academy.” His slides make interesting reading if you’re interested in CC music and related business models.

CEO Laurent Kratz and CFO Pierre Gérard are in the San Francisco bay area presenting at Under the Radar, SuperNova and the Internet Venture Fair and stopped by last night’s excellent CC Salon San Francisco.

Watch for some great features coming from Jamendo, and lots more great music.
