State of the Commons Report


Now Playing: This is Killing Me by Haunt


I found this report via the Free Music Archive.  It's called the State of the Commons report, and basically highlights the strives forward that we've seen for Creative Commons licensing since 2006.

The first level of the report is a pretty neat looking infograph; there are printable versions in various formats (PDF, PNG, JPG - you name it) so if you were interested in printing it off and hanging it somewhere, you could.  In it, the highlights include the increase of licenses from about 50 million in 2006 to a whopping 882 million in 2014.  That is huge!

There is also a link to the much longer, wordier report - which to date I admit I haven't read.  It looks like there is some solid information in there though, so I fully intend to read it (I am a copyright junkie, after all).  If you're at all interested in copyright and Creative Commons, I think it's in your best interests to read the full report.

Overall the Creative Commons put together a very informative, extensive report that should be shared everywhere.  Here's to even MORE licenses in 2015!
