Creative Commons celebrates 10 years

Happy 10, Creative Commons!

Creative Commons licencing is a powerful tool for change; it allows researchers, artists, musicians, etc. to share their work in a safe space – the CC community supports and protects attribution, while encouraging collaboration and innovation.

The sense of urgency present in responsible fashion research is there for good reason – the issues at hand are themselves urgent: human rights, living wage, environmental security, health and safety, etc.

With CC, our community can share and build research faster than ever before.

If you are not yet familiar with the licence, or what it means to us, please take a moment to learn what it’s all about.

A big happy birthday to the Creative Commons! Here’s to the next 10!
