Yesterday I attended the CC Licenses Launch as part of the Festival of Creativity and Free Culture. It took place in the Cankarjev Dom (Congress and Cultural Centre) in Ljubljana. And a fine event it was.

Some highlights:

  • Classical music and computer electronica performed together in an intrigueing performance.
  • Lawrence Lessig talked about culture. The main models of culture over the last couple of centuries, how they intermingle, and what does the future hold. For a large part of the 20th century we were sold culture as a pre-wrapped commodity. The 21st century is an opportunity to give power back to the artist, and make culture more participatory for everyone. Technology and the CC are helping in this process.
  • A funny promo film for ljudmila.org (ljubljana digital media lab). The film was later ceremoniously licensed under a new Slovene CC license.
  • Ronaldo Lemos, the CC Brazil lead, talking about how current copyright laws are failing Brazilian artists badly (e.g. only 25 CDs of Brazilian music released between Jan-Jun 2005 by the major labels there in a country of 180 million people), and how CC projects are finding ways to circumvent this to give a true expression and representaion of Brazilan culture
  • Juan Carlos de Martin of CC Italy in the state of affairs there 1 year after launch. Their profile was raised enormously earlier in the year when Beppe Grillo, a comedian and commentator on all aspects of life in Italy, licensed his blog under the CC. Aparantly it is one of the top blogs in the world.
  • Tomislav Medak from Croatia talked about the challenge there being to bring works out of the ‘infosphere’ and into the mainstream.
  • Some presentations and performances of projects in Slovenia already published under a CC license. The include the Slovene Language idiom site www.razvezanijezik.org (Tongue Unleased) and a performance from the electronica group Random Logic that blew me away.

One of the nice things was that most of the laptops hooked up for presentations/demos/site previews, no matter what platform, were running Firefox. Tech-savvy people run Firefox, sure, but so do artists! And at the party later in the evening, I talked to some of the folks from Ljudmila and Cyberpipe, and they are writing their own in-house XUL applications. Luka Frelih from Ljudmila lamented how out of date the CAWM book is out of date, but agreed the Mozilla Platform was immature back then. He raved about how useful Neil Deakin’s recent ‘How Templates Work‘ series on XULPlanet. Here here.

So CC Slovenia is now the 24th official worldwide jurisdiction. When you go to publish your work, if your browser is set up correctly, the process will now default to the Slovene Language. It’s a small country and a small (as in spoken numbers worldwide) but strong language, but this is a very big step I think for author rights and freedom of expression worldwide.

    The crux of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not really work properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do well to help fill in those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being impressed.
