Cedric Manara has emailed the IPKat to tell him that Larry Lessig will be at University College London on 4 October 2004 (details here). He’ll be speaking from 12-2pm and will be launching the UK version of the popular Creative Commons licence.

The IPKat would like to know why there’s a need for a separate UK licence. Does this mean that the US version is unsuitable for people based in the UK? If so, what happens to all those people in the jurisdiction who’ve adopted the original version of the licence?

Isn't it about time someone debunked the creative commons myth? It's not revolutionary at all - it's just a convenient mechanism for ascertaining how serious a copyright owner is about enforcing his/her/its rights.
