A Quiet Revolution: Growing Creative Commons In Aotearoa New Zealand

A Quiet Revolution: Growing Creative Commons In Aotearoa New Zealand

By Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand
Book Description

The past few years have seen a quiet, relatively well behaved, and entirely legal revolution in New Zealand Aotearoa: the growth of a thriving Commons of works made available under Creative Commons open copyright licences.

A Quiet Revolution tells Kiwi stories as diverse as open source houses, teachers banding together to share resources, government departments making their data available for anyone to use, and artists sharing their work in a spirit of collaboration and community – and shows how something as seemingly dry as copyright licensing can have profound impacts on our society, culture and economy.

If you’ve ever wondered how copyright applies to you, how Creative Commons actually works, or why so many people choose to use Creative Commons licensing, then here are the answers.
