Creative Commons Italy Launched!


I just came back from the launch event of Creative Commons Italy, and shot some (amazingly bad) photos of Lessig’s speech, which was very eloquent. Larry was a little late, as he just came in from his flight, and after he spoke, he had to endure three – four Italian language presentations! I couldn’t be at the party after the launch, but the conference in the afternoon was very interesting. I found especially illuminating the presentation by Alessandro Rubini of Free Software Europe who compared the GPL license with the CC licenses, and which CC variant the Free Software Foundation considers compatible with theirs: the ones that don’t exclude commercial use, and which don’t impose share-alike.
