to clarify, this is an open list that any member can post to. this does not automatically mean that the views expressed are those of creative commons australia, or that we endorse the content published to this list. that said, any information that gets people thinking about how to manage their rights, whether that be "all rights" or "some rights", is encouraged by creative commons australia.

the arc centre of excellence for creative industries and innovation and creative commons australia are not affiliated with the australian copyright council. we do not receive any financial support from them. we are funded by the australian research council.

Keep in mind that Brett Cottle chief executive of APRA is on the
board of the copyright council.

APRA represent the rights of the major publishers via way of the
voting structure they have in place. For every 500 dollars that an
artist or publisher collect they receive an extra vote. My view is
that none of  the people on the board of the copyright council
(meaning the organizations that those on the board represent when
they make a vote) stand to gain from more art being distributed under
any creative commons license. I have not checked out what was written
this year, yet what i read last year was extremely negative about CC.

Its worth checking out what the copyright council say about creative
commons prior to paying some dollars out to hear what the copyright
council have ready to serve you up.

The copyright council is funded through the arts council, most
automatically form the view therefore that this organization is here
to represent the interests of artists. My view is that like APRA the
copyright council is another front for the publishing industry.

Not sure why CC.au is asking people on this list to pay? Is CC.au
funded through the some source?
