OCL :: creative commons in australia

hey. thought some ppl from here might be interested in this:

Queensland University of Technology's Faculty of Law in association with Creative Industries Faculty proudly presents a conference on

Open Content Licensing (OCL):
Cultivating the Creative Commons

Early in 2004, the Creative Commons (CC) project was launched in Australia. Creative Commons aims to make copyright content more "active" by ensuring that content can be reutilised with a minimum of transactional effort.

With Special Guest Speaker
Professor Lawrence Lessig (Stanford University)

Stanford University Law Professor Lawrence Lessig is very much a superstar of the American legal academy, he has gained notoriety over the last five years as a person willing to challenge the boundaries of thinking on copyright and the Internet.

His two keynote presentations will appeal to academics from across many disciplines including Law, Creative Industries, Arts, Business, Information Technology, Social Behaviour and Ethics.

We believe that this is a tremendous opportunity for students and academics from all over the country to gather together and listen to one of the very great speakers of our times.
