Creative Commons Needs Financial Support

According to a recent posting on the SPARC Open Access Forum, the Creative Commons needs financial support from individual donors in order to retain its US tax-exempt status. To date, foundations have provided the bulk of support; donors need to become more diverse.

The Commons fights against draconian copyright laws in the digital age. OA Librarian operates under a Commons license, which means that redistribution of its content is easy and free.

Please consider making a contribution to the Creative Commons by December 31. SixApart, a blogging company, is matching all donations. Thank you for your consideration, and happy holidays.

What better gift for the world than a mechanism for gifting for all?
