The Power of Open – Creative Commons Stories
Last week, the Creative Corporation released “The Power of Open,” a 47 page book (available as a free download) that documents the stories of some of the many people who are using Creative Commons licences in their work. These include DJVadim, a musician, the ProPublica Journalism website, the Kahn Academy (which publishes free educational videos), and The Open University. The range of uses, distribution strategies, and creative business models is impressive. So is the chart (reproduced below and discussed here) that illustrates the incredible growth in the number of Creative Commons licensed works over the last ten years.
