Welcome to the discussion of the Creative Commons licenses in France!
It is my great pleasure to present to you, Melanie Dulong de Rosnay and
Jean-Baptiste Soufron our project leads in France.
I would appreciate it, if you took the time to read the following
suggestions for the use of the mailing list. They have proven valuable in
other Creative Commons countries.
1) We suggest you bookmark important emails for future reference.
is the first draft of the translation/adaptation by CERSA,
Melanie Dulong de Rosnay and Jean-Baptiste Soufron.
You will most likely return to it often, as it is the centerpiece of
the discussion. Please bookmark it now for efficiency.
is the re-translation of the license plus the explanation of what
substantive legal changes were made. It may prove useful to bookmark
2) Please try and keep your emails relatively short and limited to one
subject per email. This will prevent others from being overwhelmed, and
will help to catch up on discussions they may have missed. This approach
provides the additional benefit that you will be able to link back to
previous emails by subject very easily (as demonstrated above).
3) Please limit your suggestions and comments to things that will help
the licenses fit into French law. The role of the discussion is not to
second-guess either Creative Commons' general policy or the philosophy
reflected in the licenses. It's aim is to change the licenses the least
amount possible to make it concord with French law. Suggestions that go
beyond this goal will most likely not affect the final license. The first
line of judgment on what changes are accepted is Melanie Dulong de Rosnay's
and Jean-Baptiste Soufron's. The final judgment is Creative Commons'
and will be reached with Melanie Dulong de Rosnay's
and Jean-Baptiste Soufron's help.
4) Please feel free to ask general question about the licenses in the
cc-licenses mailing list. Part of the fun of this discussion will be, I
hope, that we get to compare the quirks and eccentricities of our
respective nations' copyright laws. I expect the archived discussions to
serve as a history of this experience. That way, your input will continue
be useful to anyone from any country even after the discussion in France
is completed. I hope that these suggestions will help to make the
discussion free and healthy, yet focused on suggested changes to the
Thank you very much. It's now Melanie Dulong de Rosnay's
and Jean-Baptiste Soufron's discussion to lead,
all the best,
