1st Creative Commons Brazil Licence signed by Gilberto Gil
At the launch of Creative Commons Brazil in Porto Alegre, in June 2004,
Gilberto Gil, the Brazilian Minister of Culture and one of Brazil's
most famous musicians, signed a symbolic CC license. This piece is a
combination of CC-history and Brazilian cultural history. Gil was one
of the first international musicians to release songs under CC
licences, and has been an active supporter of Creative Commons in
Brazil and all over the world.
Five Japanese Prints by Joi Ito (Photographic prints)
A set of five photographs from Joi Ito’s Flickr collection, showing
nature and landscape portraits from Japan.
Apart from being the chairman of the board of Creative Commons and a
member of the board of iCommons, Joi Ito is an avid photographer. In
this collection he shoots a Shinkansen station in Yamagata, a view of
Shanghai from the JW Marriot, a bamboo thicket from his yard and detail
of dragonfly wings.
Dimensions: 10x15” with inner black frame, high quality print, glossy
Pre-print of Cory Doctorow’s forthcoming novel Little Brother
A signed set of pre-publication galleys from his forthcoming,
to-be-CC-licensed novel, Little Brother. Cory Doctorow is a blogger,
journalist and science fiction author. He is active in the Free Culture
Movement, and speaks and writes extensively about liberalizing
copyright laws, digital rights management, file sharing, Disney, and
post-scarcity economics. He is a proponent of the Creative Commons
organisation, and uses some of their licenses for his books. Little
Brother is his latest book, as yet unpublished, which is written for
young adults. It is about hackers who declare war on the Department of
Homeland Security, and can be seen as a how-to guide for young culture
and technology jammers.
Five Bookmooch books from Bookmooch Founder, John Buckman
BookMooch is an international, on-line book exchange community founded
by John Buckman in July 2006. It has around 40,000 members, and
membership is open to anyone and is free. BookMooch uses a points
system for exchanging books, and members earn points by adding books to
their inventories, sending books to other members and providing
feedback when they receive books. The points earned can then be used to
“buy” books from other members. All books “cost” the same number of
points, with a small point surcharge for international mooches.
