Introduction (Timothy)

  • Describe the goals of the session: Getting more affiliates involved in shared advocacy efforts around copyright reform, supporting the public domain, and adoption of open licensing policies.

Moderated discussion (Paul/Timothy)

  • What should be the role of the CC community in shaping the copyright rules of the future? We have a policy statement, we have work activities related to it, but we don’t have a coherent strategy or issue platform per se.

  • What is our criteria for action? What are the collective “rules of engagement”?

  • What key issues are on the immediate policy and advocacy horizon, including threats to and opportunities for the commons?

  • How have groups supported each other on various issues and campaigns, even beyond the immediate participants in the room?

  • What partnerships do we want to cultivate with orgs and individuals wishing to work on policy and copyright reform issues, both from existing CC affiliate teams and new groups who might become affiliates (e.g., Communia, Wikimedia Public Policy, Mozilla, OpenMedia?
