Join the Legion of Creative Commons Superheroes!

Cre­ative Com­mons has kicked off its Legion of Super­heroes fundrais­ing cam­paign say­ing, “Imag­ine a world where knowl­edge flows freely and can be built upon with­out lim­its. Imag­ine a world where cul­ture, art and media are avail­able to every­one, sci­en­tif­ic con­tent is shared by cor­po­ra­tions and research insti­tu­tions, and shared intel­li­gence aug­ments human rights efforts across bor­ders.”

It’s not hard for us to imag­ine that world. We see it every day. Whether you know it or not, the enrich­ing video/audio fea­tured on Open Cul­ture is often released with a Cre­ative Com­mons license, which means that it can be shared freely across the globe. Our col­lec­tion of free online cours­es offers a good exam­ple. Some of the world’s finest uni­ver­si­ties release their cours­es with a CC license, allow­ing an inter­na­tion­al audi­ence to con­tin­ue learn­ing and grow­ing. And we just help get the word out.

Right now, Cre­ative Com­mons is work­ing to raise $550,000 by the end of the year to sup­port their work. I have includ­ed a lit­tle box below where you can make a con­tri­bu­tion of any size. Or you can head over to their site and do the same. If you would like to sup­port open­ness and inno­va­tion, please con­sid­er being a super­hero and giv­ing what you can.
