All Hail Creative Commons
by Rael Dornfest
Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig's Creative Commons intends to produce "flexible, customizable intellectual-property licenses that artists, writers, programmers and others can obtain free of charge to legally define what constitutes acceptable uses of their work." SF Gate Tech has the in-depth story.
Both Lawrence Lessig and Molly Van Houweling, Executive Director of Creative Commons, will be participating in the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference, May 13-16, 2002 in Santa Clara, CA.
