Collective Conditions for Re-Use (CC4r)

The CC4r articulates conditions for re-using authored materials. It is inspired by the principles of Free Culture but tries to respond to a growing discomfort with licenses that remain bound to the idea of authorship as ownership and which rely on an universalist approach to openness. The CC4r considers authorship instead to be already part of a collective cultural effort and wants to remind current and future authors of the social and historical conditions that may be reasons for refraining from release and re-use.

In an on-line session organised in collaboration with Severine Dusollier (SciencesPo, Paris), we will close-read and comment this first version of the CC4r in preparation of a new release.
