Australian Federal Government commits to CC BY as default

Big news from the Australian Government on the issue of access to public sector information.

 

In an official response released yesterday, the Federal Government has agreed to 12 of the 13 recommendations to come out of the Government 2.0 Taskforce report released last December – including Recommendation 6.3, which states that Creative Commons Attribution should be the default licensing position for PSI.

 

In addition, the government has also agreed that the new Information Commissioner currently being established will issue guidelines to ensure that:

§    by default PSI is free, open, and reusable;

§    PSI is released as quickly as possible;

§    PSI may only be withheld where there is a legal obligation preventing its release.

§    when Commonwealth records become available for public access under the Archives Act 1983, works covered by Crown copyright will be automatically licensed under an appropriate open attribution licence.

 

The response also includes an undertaking that the Attorney-General’s Department will examine the current state of copyright law with regard to orphan works (including section 200AB of the Copyright Act 1968), with the aim of recommending amendments that would remove the practical restrictions that currently impede the use of such works.

 

This is the single biggest commitment to CC licensing and open access principles by Australian government, and should mean that the majority of Australian government material will soon be available under a CC licence. The fact that both the response and the announcement have been released under CC BY is a good start.

 

The assignment of responsibility for implementation of the commitment to the new Information Commissioner is also an encouraging move, and will hopefully see a more coordinated approach to IP policy across the Australian government as a whole.

 

The response is available here and a blog post from Finance Minister Tanner is available here.

Re: Australian Federal Government commits to Open Access - clarification

Apologies – I might have been a bit overly enthusiastic in my post below.

 

Having read the report more thoroughly, the Australian Federal Government has committed to open access, but its statement re CC licensing is more properly described as an “agreement in principle”, with an undertaking that the IP Guidelines to be developed as part of the response will not "impede the default open licensing position proposed in recommendation 6.3."

 

However, the report, the announcement and the entire AGIMO blog are all under a CC BY licence, which seems like a good sign. The response also makes much of the National Government Information Licensing Framework (GILF) as an important tool in assisting government agencies in making information licensing decisions. GILF, a collaborative project between the Queensland Government and the Queensland University of Technology which is recognised internationally as a leader in the area, recommended and endorsed the use of CC licences as the core of its framework for the sharing of PSI.

 

You can find a fuller description of the Government’s Gov 2.0 response on the CCau blog at http://creativecommons.org.au/node/295.

Developments in collecting society and CC in Australia

Those interested in the complex relationship between Creative Commons and music collecting societies might be interested in some recent developments in Australia.

 

For those who are unaware, at the moment the model used by performing rights collecting societies internationally makes it difficult for musicians to license their material to others, including using a Creative Commons licence. As part of the regulated reauthorisation of APRA (our performing rights collecting society) by our competition overseer (the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – ACCC), APRA has agreed to changes to its system that will go a long way to removing these barriers. You can see the full text of the ACCC’s reauthorisation, as well as submissions from APRA and ccAustralia, at http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/896400/fromItemId/401858.

 

Let us know if anyone would like any more information

Announcing the 3rd Free Culture Research Conference, October 8-9, in Berlin

Dear all,

 

It is with great pleasure that I announce the third in a series of events exploring academic research perspectives on Free Culture. After Sapporo and Boston, this year we’re moving to Berlin, and expanding to a 2-day conference! Please see below for the details and click on the links for more information. Of course it goes without saying that we’d love to receive some contributions from you and would appreciate your help in spreading the word.

 

Please bookmark this page: http://wikis.fu-berlin.de/display/fcrc/Home

 

Call for Papers - Abstract Deadline: June 7, 2010

The 3rd Free Culture Research Conference (FCRC)
Free Culture between Commons and Markets: Approaching the Hybrid Economy?

The Free Culture Research Conference presents a unique opportunity for scholars whose work contributes to the promotion, study or criticism of a Free Culture, to engage with a multidisciplinary group of academic peers and practitioners, identify the most important research opportunities and challenges, and attempt to chart the future of Free Culture. This event builds upon the successful workshop held in 2009 at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, organized and attended by renowned scholars and research institutions from the US, Europe and Asia. The first event was held in Sapporo, Japan, in 2008, in conjunction with the 4th iCommons Summit. This year's event is larger in ambition and scope, to provide more time for interaction in joint as well as break-out sessions. It is hosted jointly by the Free University of Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies and will take place at October 8-9, 2010 at the Free University Campus in Berlin, in collaboration with COMMUNIA, the European Network on the digital public domain. Funding and support is also provided by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.

Given this year's theme and the generous support of the Free University's School of Business and Economics, we encourage submissions at the interface of Free Culture and business, although we welcome submissions from any relevant discipline, will be inclusive and will maintain the interdisciplinary nature of the event, as in previous years. Enabled by new Internet technologies and innovative legal solutions, Free Culture prospers in the form of new business models and via commons-based peer production, thereby both challenging and complementing classic market institutions. Alongside business perspectives, we expect that perspectives from law, IT, the social sciences and humanities will help us develop a better understanding of the challenges at hand, for individuals, business, law, the economy, and society at large. Topics of interest include:

  • Studies on the use and growth of open/free licensing models

  • Critical analyses of the role of Creative Commons or similar models

  • The role of  Free Culture in markets, industry, government, or the non-profit sector

  • Technical, legal or business solutions towards a hybrid economy

  • Incentives, innovation and community dynamics in open collaborative peer production

  • Economic models for the sustainability of commons-based production

  • The economic value of the public domain

  • Business models and the public domain

  • Successes and failures of open licensing

  • Analyses of policies, court rulings or industry moves that influence the future of Free Culture

  • Regional studies of Free Culture with global lessons

  • Best practices from open/free licensing, and the application of different business and organizational models by specific communities or individuals

  • Definitions of openness and freedom for different media types, users and communities

  • Broader economic, sociopolitical, legal or cultural implications of Free Culture initiatives and peer production practices

  • Methodological concerns in the study of Free Culture

This is the first time the event will be held in Europe, the home of many past supporters and participants of the Free Culture workshops and also home to millions of individual and institutional adopters of open licensing models. We will therefore strive to promote and connect European scholars working in relevant spheres, while also representing the global diversity of the field.

For more information see:

 

Giorgos

(on behalf of the FCRC 2010 organizing committee)

Oz budget under CC

Those interested in open PSI will be excited to know that the Australian budget delivered last night was released under a Creative Commons Attribution licence.

 

Following the strong support for open access in the government's response to the Gov 2.0 report last week, this is a great show of the government putting its money where its mouth is (sorry, I couldn't resist). In fact, the last week has seen the release of three major Federal Government reports - the Budget, the Gov 2.0 response and the NBN Implementation Study - all under CC licences. This seems to be a great indicator that the government really means what it says - open access is going to be the default position for the Australian Federal Government from now on.

 

I’d love to see an artistic mashup of the budget document – anyone?
