From 21 – 24 August 2013, the global community of Creative Commons will gather in Buenos Aires for the bi-annual Global Summit. The event will be co-hosted by local Creative Commons affiliates, Fundación Vía Libre and Wikimedia Argentina. This is the first time the conference will be held in a Spanish-speaking country, and the second time in Latin America. The event will bring together Creative Commons affiliates from the around the world with the CC board, its staff, key stakeholders, local representatives and others interested in the present and future of the commons. Attendees will discuss strategies to strengthen Creative Commons and its worldwide community; learn about the latest developments in the commons movement worldwide; and showcase local and international projects that use Creative Commons licenses. Topics covered will include the implementation of open policies in areas such as government, education, culture, business, science, data and more, as well as related topics such as free software, license development, collecting societies and copyright advocacy. The IP Unit is Creative Commons South Africa’s hosting institution and will therefore send several delegates to Argentina.
