Creative Commons: You Are The Power of Open

Creative Commons recently launched their 2011 Creative Commons annual campaign: You are the power of open. Creative Commons has a significant influence on open government efforts, at all levels of government, worldwide. Jane Park explains the impact Creative Commons is having on making the world a more open place:

"The world is experiencing an explosion of openness. From artists inviting creative collaboration to governments around the world requiring publicly funded works be available to everyone, the spirit and practice of sharing is gaining momentum and producing results."
