This morning, the capital of culture 2007 was officially launched. Food and mood were good, even the sky was cyan, like the deer.
Luxembourg2007 is the main funding partner for Creative Commons Luxembourg, while we also get support from the National Culture fund and many others who help with work and organisation. Thanks!
Jedi from CC Taiwan annonced a neat tool today:
There is a FAQ entry “I used part of a Creative Commons-licensed work, which Creative Commons license can I relicense my work under?” CC HQ provides a matrix to show the compatibility of each CC license:
However, we found it not so easy for everybody to understand this matrix in our country. So that we’ve worked out a interactive-style matrix to help people to get the whole idea. What we done is based on “(Open Source) Licenses Wizard v3.0” – a product from our sister project, Open Source Software Foundry. We call it “Creative Commons Licenses Compatibility Wizard:”
This wizard was first written in Traditional Chinese for our people. Later we made an English translation one for all of you:
You can play with it, download its source code, modify it if you like, and learn more about “(Open Source) Licenses Wizard v3.0” or “Open Source Software Foundry” project from links above.
Please note that this stuff is still quite rough — we know there are much to improve.
NO COPY – The Movie is a short animated film depicting the history of digital piracy and the rise of Free Culture. Beginning with the first hackers and crackers leading to the development of “the Scene”, through to file sharing, the entertainment wars and mass downloads, the movie tells the story of how industry mistakes created the need for a free culture movement.
You can stream the movie via the site, download it for free in SWF-Format or as self playing files for Windows or Mac. The original voice-over is in German with an English subtitled version available.
Inspired by Epic 2015, a rather dystopian vision of the internet in 2015, basically: personalised trash
