Creative Commons Launches Program to Identify, Share Open Business Models

Creative Commons is developing an “open business models initiative” aimed at showing how Creative Commons licenses are being used by businesses, not-for-profits, and governments. According to Paul Stacey, Creative Commons’ associate director of global learning, one of the most asked questions by entrepreneurs to the Creative Commons organization is, “How do I earn a living, pay the bills, and keep the lights on if I openly license my work and give it away for free?” The project is intended to identify and share examples of businesses that are doing just that.

For details on activities related to the business models initiative, including specifics for participation, and links to the participation tools, visit the Creative Commons Open Business Models Participation Activities document.
