About

About Creative Commons globally

Creative Commons (CC) is a nonprofit organisation that helps overcome legal obstacles to the sharing of knowledge and creativity to address the world’s pressing challenges. It achieves its mission by providing free, simple, and standardised Creative Commons licences, collaborating with licence users, supporting the CC Global Network, producing events like the CC Summit, providing education such as the CC Certificate program and developing technology like CC Search.

About CC in Australia

Creative Commons Australia (CC Australia) is our local Chapter of the CC Global Network. CC Australia promotes and encourages the use of CC licences in Australia. We coordinate Chapter meetings and working groups, organise engagement events and share global news with the Chapter and our communities.

CC Australia is an informal network of interested individuals and organisations working collaboratively to realise the potential of Creative Commons in Australia and our region. New members are always welcome.
