I love knitting. I love the Creative Commons. I hope wearing this hat will get people asking me about what Creative Commons is.
Do you want to learn more about Creative Commons too? Ok. Try:
- Flickr’s Creative Commons Site
- An Article showing why Canada should apply Creative Commons licenses to its publications.
- BoingBoing.net’s ‘copyfight’ tag that tends to be fairly pro-Creative Commons.
- Laurence Lessig’s (founder of Creative Commons) blog
- A list of books released under creative commons license (HINT: maybe add these to your catalogue?)
Also, I should make a note that the Creative Commons logo is not a creative commons licensed item. I did ask permission to use it and got a ‘no – but do you really think we would want to put the resources into suing someone who is going to knit a creative commons hat with no intention to make a profit from it?’ response. In short, if you want to make your own creative commons hat, you should do it in such a way that will not make the CC organization want to put resources into suing you. They are an open organization, it shouldn’t be hard to figure out how to keep that from happening!
