Press Release: SINGAPORE ANNOUNCES PORTED CREATIVE COMMONS LICENSES

July 27, 2008

It’s official.

Creative Commons Singapore announces the completion of the locally ported Creative Commons licensing suite. In close collaboration with Centre for Asia Pacific Technology Law & Policy (CAPTEL), the Creative Commons team in Singapore, led by Associate Professor Samtani Anil and Assistant Professor Giorgos Cheliotis, adapted the licenses both linguistically and legally to Singaporean national law.

The Creative Commons licenses, now ported to 47 jurisdictions, enable authors, artists, scientists, and educators the choice of a flexible range of protections and freedoms in efforts to promote a voluntary “some rights reserved” approach to copyright.

The full announcement is at the Creative Commons press release page. Thanks to Associate Professor Anil Samtani for the heads-up.

As I mentioned at my blog, I’ll organise our next GarageBand Meetup Singapore (likely to be in September) with Creative Commons in mind.

Like CCmixter meets Songcraft.
