Creative Commons Austria

CC affiliated since 2004

We take care of promotion and translation and demonstrate applications of intangible commons.

In 2004 we started Creative Commons Austria with an art action: 1000 Open Source Water Bottles were bottled on Hatler fountain in Dornbirn and brought to the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, as Creative Commons won the Golden Nica. Since then, we take care about license and content questions in Austria, and how they can be freed from unnecessary copyright shackles.

The greatest success is not only the more than 1 billion works that have been submitted under a CC license by 2015, but also the leadership of Austria: the cities of Graz, Linz and Vienna presented in its Open Data Initiative publicly available data under a CC-by license for the first time in 2011.Other public institutions followed
