A new book, Intelligent Multimedia: Managing Creative Works in a Digital World, has just been published by European Press Academic Publishing that has a lot of CC-themed/relevant material.
By CC friends (and former staffer) Danièle Bourcier, Pompeu Casanovas, Mélanie Dulong de Rosnay and Catharina Maracke, the book summarises and examines the social and technical transformation of users to cultural actors enabled by affordable computer technologies coupled with the advances in multimedia technology.
It has an entire section on 'Creative Commons and Digital Rights: A New Kind of Governance' with 10 separate chapters, each penned by a different CC affiliate/friend from around the world, covering topics from tech commons to open education materials. CCau staffers Anne Fitzgerald, Neale Hooper, Brian Fitzgerald contributed the chapter 'The Use of Creative Commons Licensing to Enable Open Access to Public Sector Information and Publicly Funded Research Results: An Overview of Recent Australian Developments'.
Anyone interested in CC and its place in the current world should consider ordering a copy.
