**New survey on open content licences**
==Use of open content licences by cultural heritage organisations==
The Eduserv Foundation is funding a study into the use of Creative
Archive, Creative Commons and similar open content licences by
cultural heritage organisations in the United Kingdom. The study is
being led by legal consultant Jordan Hatcher of
opencontentlawyer.com. The survey is available here:
This survey is open to UK-based cultural heritage organisations such
as museums, libraries, galleries, archives, film and video
organisations, broadcasters, and other organisations that conduct
cultural heritage activities.
The goal of this study is to provide information on the actual use of
Creative Archive, Creative Commons, and similar licences. This
information will be useful to decision makers and interested
professionals in the cultural heritage sector, and for local and
national government and the HE and FE sector. The study will be
conducted from now through to the middle of September and a report
will be made available in October.
If you are a member of a cultural heritage organisation, whether or
not you currently use Creative Commons or Creative Archive licences
(or even know what they are!), your participation is needed to make
this study a success.
Again, the survey is available at:
==iPod Shuffle giveaway==
As a bonus for completing the survey, respondents will get the chance
to enter a drawer to win one of three iPod Shuffles that come pre-
loaded with music! See the survey for full details.
==Blog and email -- Please help spread the word==

survey by blogging about it or forwarding this email to people who
