O Creative Commons Global Summit takes place between May 9 and 11, with sessions at the Museu do Oriente and the Cineteatro Capitolio, in Lisbon, and welcomes the main worldwide actors of this community created around the model of copyright licensing promoted by an organization without to profit. The conference is supported by Creative Commons Portugal.
Topics such as "Open Business Models and Copyright Reform in the EU", "Artificial Intelligence and CC Licenses", "The Current State of Content Filters", "Domestic and International Copyright Reform – The Case European "and" Copyright Art – Why and How Artists Work and Deal with Copyright in Their Works "are some of the topics to be covered in the 120 sessions scheduled in the agenda. There are also two evening events, including a closing party with Portuguese artists João Pais Filipe (Lovers & Lollipops), Progressivu (Enchufada), DJ Narciso and Dj Ninoo (Prince Discos) and London GLORIA.
Among the speakers this year are James Boyle and Jennifer Jenkins of the Duke University Center for the Study of the Public Domain and Adele Vrana and Siko Bouterse of Whose Knowledge. In addition to that, six global community leaders, including Majd al Shihabi, the first Bassel Khartabil Free Culture Fellowship fellow, and Sophie Bloemen, founder of Commons Network Europe, will share their expertise on open learning.
The initiative has already been held in Toronto, Seoul and Buenos Aires, with the support of UPTEC – U.Porto Science and Technology Park and more than 450 participants from 100 countries are expected.
Since the Creative Commons organization was founded in 2001 the use of licenses has been growing exponentially. The six copyright and public domain licenses created by the organization have been used more than 1.4 billion times through major platforms such as Wikipedia, YouTube, Flickr, Vimeo, 500px or Medium, as well as major cultural institutions such as Europeana, Rijksmuseum, National Portrait Gallery or the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
