Creative Commons, six years in

December 13, 20008. Some of the top thinkers on copyright in a digital age come together to celebrate the sixth anniversary of Creative Commons. At the Berkman centre, Harvard. There's a lot here, over an hour.

Creative Commons held a special panel and fundraiser on Friday featuring Board Chairman James Boyle, Stanford professor and CC founder Larry Lessig, CEO Joichi Ito, and former Executive Director Molly S. Van Houweling. The event kicked off with HLS Dean Elena Kagan announcing Lessig’s return to Harvard (in fall 2009) and an introduction by Charlie Nesson. Jonathan Zittrain- moderating the session- then zoomed in with his first question: where did Creative Commons start?
