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?

  1. 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.


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
