Soon a Creative Commons based broadcast content in the Netherlands?


Coverage by Alex Steffen at WorldChanging of an article by Figueiredo in DMeurope.com of a conference involving Creative Commons, and future proposals by Dutch parlamentarians for the release under CC licenses of all publicly financed broadcast content in The Netherlands.

Public creativity leveraging content produced with publicly financed projects is appropriate, and overdue. Will joint media projects with companies opposing this kind of approach suffer once CC is going to be seen as “tainting ” the content? A good comparison should be the requirement of publicly financed scientific research being freely available in the US.
