Creative Commons: Turning 10!

Greetings Friends of CC:

As I'm sure you know, this year is Creative Commons' 10th Birthday!  Starting this Friday, we'll be launching into a 10-day frenzy of celebrations leading up to 16 December - the day the first CC license suite was launched in 2002.

The celebrations will be wide ranging, including more than 20 celebrations worldwide, a dedicated website, interviews and featured resources, a social media campaign and our usual annual fundraising campaign.

As part of the CC community, there are many things you can do to help:

  • Add a widget or banner to your website: you can find the official CC10 logo (scroll to the bottom of the page).
  • Go to a party, or encourage your friends to attend. There are CC10 events planned on every continent (except Antarctica), starting tonight and continuing almost every day through December 16. There are even some online events and webinars.
  • Friend us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and let your friends know. The hashtag for the celebrations will be #CC10
  • Give CC a birthday present! Write something, draw something, compose something - whatever you do well - and add it to our CC10 Flickr group, or send it to us via Twitter, Facebook or at press@creativecommons.org
  • And, of course, please encourage your friends and family to donate (or even donate yourself).

Most gratefully,


Give CC a birthday gift!

Creative Commons is turning 10 this month. Millions of people around the world are using CC licenses to make the Internet a smarter, freer, and more innovative place. We are grateful to you, as a member of the global community that supports Creative Commons. Thank you for being part of the CC team.

Give CC a birthday gift today, and make an investment in the future of the Internet as a place to openly create, share, collaborate, and learn. We need your help to launch our next decade with a birthday gift of $25, $50, $100, or more.

When we blow out the candles on the CC birthday cake, our wish is no secret. We want another decade with even more CC licensed photos, videos, music, educational materials, textbooks, data, and scientific research available to everyone on the planet. We’re only 10 and we’re just getting started.

Please join CC in shaping the future of sharing, and donate now!

With great appreciation,

Cathy Casserly

p.s. donate at least $50 and get our new CC t-shirt!
