C4C Welcomes Creative Commons

C4C is proud to announce that Creative Commons signed on to our Declaration which promotes a copyright framework that fosters creativity, innovation, education, competitiveness and access to culture.

Creative Commons is a non-profit organization at the center of a high-profile, international movement to promote sharing of creativity and knowledge. It provides the well-known suite of licenses and public domain tools that have become the global standard used by leading companies, institutions and individuals across culture, education, government, science, and more to promote digital collaboration and innovation. Their goal is to help realize the full potential of the Internet, namely universal access to research and education, full participation in culture, in order to drive a new era of development growth, and productivity.

Timothy Vollmer, Creative Commons’ Manager Public Policy, explains that they are “pleased to join likeminded organizations in C4C who are fighting to ensure a balanced EU copyright law that supports creativity, the public interest, and the commons”.

C4C welcomes Creative Commons and looks forward to a strong collaboration at the European and national level. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Caroline De Cock, Coordinator of the C4C Coalition, at +32 (474) 840515, or Timothy Vollmer at
