CC Copyright Platform



The Creative Commons Copyright Platform brings together experts in copyright law and policy to develop and carry out projects and activities related to policy, legislative and regulatory issues in the field of copyright at the international and national levels with the aims of upholding the public interest and enriching and protecting the public domain.

This platform is open to all interested people working on copyright policy issues. We work in a transparent, professional, ethical and public manner to undertake projects and activities aimed at fulfilling agreed-upon, collaboratively developed goals and principles.
