Leading by Example: Large-Scale OER Initiatives Across SUNY
The SUNY OER Road Show: Peer Advocacy Efforts in Large-Scale Professional Development The State University of New York (SUNY) has moved to scale OER program adoption rapidly across its 64 institutions. Faculty and librarian advocacy has been crucial to implementing change, increasing OER adoption and development across our community colleges, comprehensives, and research universities. In a day-long program of OER awareness-building, the faculty panel has become the focal event, garnering the most audience participation. Our panelists will speak to their experiences as faculty panelists and discipline spokespeople at OER workshops across our diverse system in Fall 2017.

Building Open Degree Pathways in SUNY
In June of 2016, five community colleges from the State University of New York (SUNY) were selected to participate in the Achieving the Dream OER Degree Initiative. The five colleges, Monroe, Tompkins Cortland, Herkimer, Mohawk Valley, and Clinton, set off to put together five different degrees made up of OER courses. This panel will feature faculty and OER campus leads from each of the colleges.

Starting With the User: User Experience Methods as a Framework to Assess and Improve the Usability of CC Licenses + For the Users, by the Users
Starting with the user: User Experience methods as a framework to assess and improve the usability of CC licenses
Good user experience is pivotal to the evolution and continued longevity of CC licenses, their use, and uptake by new users. This talk proposes using the broader concept of User Experience (UX) as a framework for approaching the continued development of CC tools and services, with a focus on CC licenses. Common UX methods will be introduced with a view to intentionally including a diversity of community voices to improve the way that CC licenses are explained, promoted, and applied.

For the users, by the users
The session resonates with the 2nd goal of the summit, which says "Leverage the power of the CC Network through inclusive and diverse participation: shared objectives, collaboration, and communication." The talk revolves around how the practice of crafting the user experience changes drastically when a community is involved. What a team of UX researchers and usability testers could probably miss to address sitting in isolation in a glass room, can hardly go unseen by a community.

Why Do GLAMs Need Their Own Rights Statements? Aren’t Creative Commons Licenses Enough?
In this session we will give an introduction to the RightsStatements.org project. RightsStatements.org provides a set of standardized internationally interoperable rights statements for cultural heritage institutions to communicate the copyright and reuse status of digital objects that they make available to the public. This session will discuss how Rights Statements relates to the CC licenses, how it serves the need of aggregation platforms like the DPLA and Europeana and how CC licenses and statements work together to allow cultural heritage institutions to describe copyright status.

What If We Really Get OER Right? And How Can We Make It Happen?
At Rebus we are thinking about a scalable approach to publishing OER, building out systems based on collaboration, with an initial focus on North America. But if we (or similar projects) get this right, we start to be able to think about where and how the model could have impacts: around the globe and in (many) specific subject areas. What could that look like? Do we want it to happen? How do we get there in a way that is mindful of vastly differing contexts? Can we build tools/systems/approaches that are in service of localized needs, rather than forcing "a way of doing things"?

Inspired by these questions, we have spent a year giving hands-on support to ~15 open textbook projects, and are now turning what we've learned into tools and resources that can be used by others looking to publish open textbooks. We've learned how to successfully (or not) recruit, engage and retain collaborators from around the world, and now want to help make publishing easier for others. In this session, we’ll talk about where we’ve been, where we’re going, what we’ve learned, and how you can get involved!

3D Printing and Open Innovation: Intellectual Property, the Creative Commons and the New Economy
This presentation will consider 3D printing in terms of intellectual property, the Creative Commons, and the New Economy.  It will explore the use of open licensing in the context of the maker movement, 3D printing and additive manufacturing. This paper looks at the controversy over Left Shark. In particular, it examines the copyright claims of Katy Perry in respect of the Left Shark figure. It considers questions about scanning. Augustana College tried to assert copyright against a maker, Jerry Fisher, who was scanning statues of Michelangelo (although copyright had long since expired in such work). It focuses upon copyright law, 3D printing and readymades. The Estate of Marcel Duchamp lodged a copyright protest over a 3D printed set of chess, based on the work of Marcel Duchamp. It examines the intervention of a number of 3D printing companies in a Supreme Court of the United States dispute in Star Athletic v. Varsity Brands. It considers copyright law and intermediary liability. It examines the operation of technological protection measures in the context of copyright law and 3D Printing. There has been a tension between the proprietary approaches of start-up companies (particularly in respect of trade secrets), and the open ethos of the maker movement. One of the key features of the State of the Commons Report 2016 was the increasing use of creative commons licenses in the context of 3D printing.  There has been much discussion about the adoption of 3D printing in terms of open licensing, open education, open data, and open innovation.

Best Practices for Creating and Collecting "Open" Digital Collections + Learn, Collaborate and Share: How We Activate “Open” at the Toronto Public Library
Best Practices for Creating and Collecting Open Digital Collections
Cultural heritage organizations are collaborating with community partners to tell history in innovative and interactive ways.
How do we design workflows to capture community content, how can we share content “sustainably,” and why does it matter? This session will focus on best practices for gathering community contributions that facilitates the creation and sharing of open heritage.  We’ll share some lessons learned on working with cultural heritage data.

Learn, Collaborate and Share: How We Activate “Open” at the Toronto Public Library
Public libraries were founded on the recognition that everyone benefits from free access to knowledge and culture. The Open Movement has produced new opportunities and challenges for how the library shares. This presentation will provide an overview of how Toronto Public Library has adopted open data, open source software, open access and creative commons into our programs, services, and collections, and how they have impacted our diverse patrons.

Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property, Traditional Knowledge, Copyright, and Creative Commons: A Discussion of Practices and Principles
This panel will explore the issues, challenges, opportunities, and best practices for engaging with Indigenous culture and knowledge. In some spaces, this conversation has been approached through the framework of intellectual property, however, in many indigenous communities the concept of “ownership” is not recognized. Discussion will likely cover topics including key concerns among Indigenous artists, historians, leaders, and creators with respect to open access and/or copyright law and fair copyright movements; how CC’s community and users and open access/sharing culture might best approach ICIP and TK, including if CC tools offer an appropriate solution at all; how to establish and instil best practices and their significance among non-Indigenous CC /open access users; and how to ensure sensitivity and respect towards relevant cultural and sociopolitical contexts if considering usage or collaboration.

The Global Digital Library – Providing Freely Licensed Early Grade Reading Resources in Underserved Languages
The Global Digital Library - providing freely licensed early grade reading resources in underserved languages
Major progress has been made towards increasing primary school enrolment rates. Still, 250 million children of primary school age are not able to recognize basic letters and numbers, despite most of them having attended school for several years. There are also 750 million illiterate youth and adults. One important reason for one billion people not learning to read is that they do not have access to quality early grade reading resources in a language they understand. The Global Digital Library is working to change this, with Creative Commons at the core of our project.

The Global Digital Library 
The Global Digital Library (GDL) is being developed to increase the availability of high-quality reading resources in underserved languages worldwide. The GDL will collect existing high quality open educational reading resources, made available on web, mobile and for print. We will also facilitate translation and localization of these resources to more than 300 languages. The goal is to make titles in 100 languages available on the GDL-platform by the end of 2020.

The workshop will contain:
  • Introduction to the Global Digital Library
  • Demo of GDL web and native app
  • Demo of translation and localization features
In this workshop, we will also give a practical introduction to the localization of early grade reading books, letting participants test the platform for translation into their language.

The Campaign Game: Learn to Think Like a Creator of Open Content
A hairdresser, graffiti artist and sound designer were approached by Darth Vader to think of a campaign to stop ponies from being bullied. That happened during this workshop in 2017. People left the room saying: "I did not only learn something here, I had lots of fun and made new friends!". That's why this needs to take place again.

One future aspect of the commons is to increase the amount of content that is made to be shared, that is open by default. In this game you get to be a creator and you'll learn how to design a plan for a campaign with a multidisciplinary team.

How Can GLAM Institutions Involve Themselves in Copyright Reform Discussions?
In this session, we attempt to understand drivers, motivations and barriers from GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) institutions to involve themselves in the copyright reform.

We will present the outcomes of the Copyright advocacy campaign from Europeana and present the experiences of involvement of the Cinema Museum in the copyright reform process in Argentina, and the challenges departments under the Ministry of Culture Taiwan face while trying to release digital resources or collections to the public.

Session outcomes
  • Understand drivers, motivations and challenges that GLAM institutions face when discussing copyright reform;
  • receive feedback and collect experiences from other parts of the world;
  • explore ways in which GLAM institutions could be more effectively vocal about copyright reform.

Winning Sometimes Mean Letting Go: Identifying When to Use Open Content Licenses
You've created something great - how can you know whether you should release it using an open content license? This project identifies the optimal circumstances in which to use open licenses (like Creative Commons) to disseminate creative cultural expression. By providing a user-friendly checklist to guide decision-making, this project empowers creators and entrepreneurs by focusing on questions relating to the licensor, the licensed work, the market into which it's being released, and the community/audience which will support it.

State of Open Licenses – Forging a Path Ahead in the Open Licensing Jungle
Despite standard open licenses created by CC and Open Knowledge International (via the Open Definition), many organizations develop their own ‘open’ licenses. This poses challenges for users, because they can’t be sure that these are truly open, preventing us from moving towards a legally compatible data commons. This workshop is to discuss open licensing and how we can make progress so that the promise of being able to combine and share freely can be accomplished. We hope this will result in a renewed effort between Creative Commons and Open Knowledge to tackle open license proliferation.

How DOAJ Ambassadors and CC local communities can promote knowledge and usage of CC licensing in the Global South
Scientific knowledge from the Global South is very much underrepresented  in the collective scientific output worldwide. This is not different for Open Access publishing. DOAJ ambassadors worldwide  have been educating publishers from their region on Good Open Access publishing practices based on DOAJ criteria and on the use of CC licenses. I By building  local CC communities in cooperation with the CC organization the DOAJ programme can further improve the quality of publishing in the global south and act against the Northern dominance in knowledge sharing.

The project of the “CC certification” and the launch of the first beta cohort in 2018 has opened the opportunity to discuss how the CC certification course could be potentially adopted in other areas of knowledge. In particular, the state of the art of research in the GLAM sector shows at first sight a disparate level of understanding and awareness of what CC licenses and marks are for and what do they allow for building communities and enlarge audiences in connection with digital technologies.

And although there are great examples of big cultural institutions embracing both the values and the tools that CC has to offer, the situations vary a lot within institutions, countries, cultural backgrounds and languages. There are several GLAM institutions that after the initial boost of excitement for adopting CC licenses get trapped in discussions with legal departments or face different challenges to open up their collection to the public they serve. How can the CC certification help them move forward those discussions and effectively implement the institutional policy that they want? And how this institutional policy will allow them to take the leap on re-use, re-mix, discoverability and usability of digital cultural objects?

Moreover, how can the CC GLAM certification contribute to the “realize the full potential of the Internet — universal access to research and education, full participation in culture”?
 
Session Outcomes
  • Identify the goals for the CC GLAM Certificates and what do we want to achieve with them;
  • Analyze what elements such a certificate should have and which elements from the core certification need to be expanded;
  • Establish a working group for the CC GLAM Certificates and set the basis for the way in which the group will function and work

Agenda for the meeting

16 - 16.15    Introduction

= “Say your name, institution, area of interest”.
= Why are we holding this session. Outcomes of the session: what do we want to achieve
= What are the CC certificates and how do they work? + next steps (train the trainers, chapters, boost camps?)
= Experiences from the CC Certificate Beta for Librarians. Walkthrough the modules, performance assessments.

16.15 - 16:40    Break-up groups discussion. Identify challenges, opportunities & topics

= What are the topics specifics to GLAM? Adaptation of the core certification.
= Why should GLAM institutions should do the certificate? Who are the people inside GLAM institutions that should do the certification? (i.e., museum specialists, legal department?)
= What do we want to obtain out from GLAM institutions? (i.e., open up their collection, be advocates of CC licensing among artists, creators and content producers, avoid copyfraud, enable more reuse of digital collections, make them advocates for copyright reform, etc.)
= What are the essential challenges that you have with CC licenses? What are your knowledge gaps at licensing? What are the opportunities and challenges that you see when working with CC licensing?
= Are there ways to work with other open communities? If so, which ones?
= How do the certificates align with the objective of improving usability, discoverability and reuse of digital collections?
= What’s the level of awareness of GLAM institutions about CC licensing and openness? How can we measure that? (state of the art: Report from Kennisland)
= ToS: why GLAM institutions choose to create their own ToS? (state of the art: Report from Kenneth Crews about copyright & ToS ; Display at Your Own Risk), how that should be address in a CC GLAM certification?
= How do we talk about other tools such as RightStatements?
= Performance assessments: what should be the goals of the performance assessments and how can we improve the current ones?
= #cc-quests: explore the model of #cc-quests used for core certification
= possible partnerships for the GLAM certification (i.e. “before you upload this content, you should do the certification”). How are big partners in the field offering information about the CC licenses / PD mark? Which partners could be advocates for the CC GLAM certification?
= What do we want to teach people in the certification? What entitles them to do?

16:40 - 16:45    Follow-up

= Expression of interest for the working group on the GLAM certification
= Invite to slack channel #cc-openglam

OA Scholarly Journal Publishing: Partnering with Libraries to Build the CC Community
In a scholarly communications ecosystem dominated by large commercial publishers, library publishing services are important sites of resistance where academic communities can explore ways of creating and sharing knowledge outside of profit-driven economic models. This three-speaker panel will explore how the University of Alberta Libraries’ journal publishing program has led to greater community support and development, using the journal Evidence Based Library and Information Practice as a case study.

CC for Real Users: Improving the Ways We Share Content on the Web
How might we improve the way people discover, reuse, and publish images on the web... so that people can participate in an image sharing culture that is more collaboratively created? How might people identify and contribute relevant and useful digital texts... so that people engage with quality* information and ideas? How might we prototype and launch a new model for CC by the end of 2018 that meets and exceeds the needs of both our current and future users?

Creative Commons will report on progress made to answer these questions as part of its usability initiative, specifically findings from expert and group interviews with users and creators of free content. Session participants will participate in shaping the design phase, where we will be identifying opportunities for better design of how CC licenses are represented on the web, discussing the following questions:

  • What are the current challenges people are facing in this space?    
  • What are some creative experiments we could run to learn more?   
  • If you had a magic wand, what would you create and why would that make people’s lives easier?

Copyright Reform Platform
At last year’s summit we began to explore the development of issue-based platforms that will be run by the CC global network. We talked about the potential for a platform on copyright reform to push for positive copyright policy change in service of the commons and the public interest. We developed a background document. But now, with the launch of the new global network imminent—and with advocates together again—we need to reexamine our goals in relation to current policy opportunities, decide on education and outreach activities, and sketch out a roadmap for 2018.

Empathetic Design for Code of Conduct Enforcement in Open Communities
In the last year, we've seen a massive increase in the number of open projects adopting a 'Code of Conduct'.  What is also true, is that the majority of those have no clear process for enforcement  - and that we primarily regard Codes of Conduct as mechanisms for consequence and punishment rather than tools for Community Health - as is their potential.

This workshop combines Design Thinking, with templates and processes of Mozilla's Community Participation Guideline enforcement process to help participants design for diverse and empowering governance - with goals for learning along the way.

Edusprints: Community Events to Create OER
How can the Open Source community better support educators to create, use and share OER? Since march 2017, our project edulabs.de organized meetups with teachers and volunteers from civic tech initiatives. In the workshop I want to discuss experiences and the further potential of community-based event formats to foster a culture of sharing.

Some topics to discuss
  • Common obstacles for OER creation and what to do instead
  • Open Educational Resources and / or Open Education ?
  • Education and Open Culture
  • How to organize edusprint events
  • Co-creative approaches to OER quality
  • Collaboration formats to discover/create/share OER
  • Why we had to build a candy machine

Infrastructure is Everything, Governance is Everything, Inclusion is Everything!
A multimedia show about Open and the future of the Commons, tackling the key issues that have nothing to do with changing tech or policy. The infrastructure, which is social and human and non-human. The governance, which is often missing. And inclusion, which means everybody. Open needs to be about being heard and read, not just the white knights. But let's make it a party (with music and poetry and visuals). We're going to start making and sharing stuff.

This is an interactive session. I want your views on infrastructure, governance and inclusion in Open. If you can't be at Summit, this is your chance to be involved - email penny@ pennybphd.com! Please note that all contributions need to be licenced CC-BY to be used. An example of a short video would be this clip (you can film on your phone!) which explains who the speaker is and why they are there. I want to know who you are, where you are from and what you feel strongly about when it comes to tech, labour, governance and inclusion.

What Wikimedia Has Learned From Nearly a Decade of GLAM-Wiki
The Wikimedia community has actively developed partnerships with cultural heritage institutions that promote adoption of open practices and licensing since at least 2009, called "GLAM-Wiki".

In this talk, Stinson, a strategist at the Wikimedia Foundation, will talk about the challenges and opportunities faced by the movement, individual GLAM-Wiki contributors, and their partner organizations, especially around changing data technology and knowledge equity.

Open Notebook Science: Sharing Research to Build Communities and Collaborations With Researchers, Funders and Patients
“Cutting-edge” research can take years to be made public due to academic communication using prescribed manuscript formats via publishers which may pay-wall the work. Open notebooks permit the free sharing of research from desk or bench to “publication” in just hours. Sharing research in an open notebook can engage larger communities of stakeholders including patient groups, disease advocacy organizations, funders, researchers and the public. In this session, Rachel Harding will share her experiences of running an open notebook and practical steps forward to build open notebook communities.

Open data, open research: fuel for a healthier internet
Today, online life is real life. But the systems that underpin the Internet are increasingly opaque to everyday users. Research is vital to helping us understand how the connected world works and who holds power. But that research is not always open. Even when it is, it can be difficult to gather or make sense of.

In this session, hosted by Mozilla’s Internet Health Report team, you’ll join others exploring Internet research questions and advocating for open access, to discuss the importance & challenge of measuring our online world and how we can do this work together.

Translation Working Group Session
Since its conception, CC licenses were “ported” not only to different legal ecosystems, but specially to different languages across the world. This was a translation effort coordinated for the licenses, but what about other types of documents and information? Last year, the Faces of the Commons report pointed out the need to highlight the diversity of languages inside the network, both as a way to celebrate that diversity but also to create spaces where the concerns of speakers of other languages different from English are heard.

The availability of information in your local language empowers people and enables participation. A coordinated initiative between the network and HQ to expand the availability of information in other languages will contribute to a more diverse and vibrant commons. As stated by the FoC report, “language is the first Commons”, as it entails the cultural background of the different communities that are part of the network.

The goal of this session is to start a conversation about how to boost and support efforts to build the commons in other languages different from English and make them more accessible. We’ll discuss what we need to do in order to put this working group together, what we want to achieve, and which tools we need to achieve that.

Session outcomes
  • Identify and map the people in the network and at CC HQ who would be interested in being a part of a translation working group;
  • Exchange lessons learned out of the process of the legal translations so that we can improve the processes;
  • Analyze the current technical and legal infrastructure and processes for doing translations and understand CC HQ policies regarding translations (taking into account the differences between official and unofficial translations and categories of text to which they apply);
  • Help establish a formal/permanent mechanism and criteria for doing translations and acknowledge the work of contributors;
  • Identify priority translation projects and pages;
  • Organize network-wide translation activities in order to improve the availability of information about CC in other languages (website, leaflets, etc).
Working documents

AGENDA FOR THE MEETING

= Introductions: Identify and map interested participants (10 min): “Say your name, institution, areas of interest”.
Presentation by George Hari Popescu (CC HQ):
= Brief report of the translation achievements of 2017
= Acknowledge and express gratitude to those who participated in translations of the 4.0 licenses
= Official and ported translations and the difference between the two
= Current policies, processes (steps) and technical and legal infrastructure used for translations (including tools that are used - Google Docs, staging server, Transifex -, engagement with the legal team when necessary, etc.).

Goal, objectives, activities for the Translation Working Group
= Identify the goal of the TWG. What and why do we need it? What do we want to achieve? Which ones are going to be our milestones?
= Discuss how the group will organize itself and work together (meetings, processes, etc.)
= Discuss interactions that the TWG will have with other platforms / working groups
= Identify priority translations (what CC content should be translated?).
= Commons in other languages: how can we better help to allow more translations of creative content (not related to CC or the licenses) available in as many languages as possible and make them more usable? (i.e., PD works that are only in major languages)
= Identify ideas to better promote the 4.0 licenses

Discuss how the translation process can be improved
= How can the process be unified and simplified?
= How can we credit contributors?
= How are other organizations addressing translations and featuring the work of their collaborators?
= In person: Eddie Avila from Global Voices will explain how they work at GV
= Wrap-up with some conclusions (15 min)               
= Follow up: join us at #translation-wg on Slack!

Short Talk Series: Reclaiming Our(digital)selves
This session is part of the Short Talks series where each speaker presents a 20 minute talk and then take part in a combined Q&A / panel with the other speakers in the session with the aim of creating an interesting cross-fertilisation of ideas and discussion.
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery: how to communicate to denaturalize enclosures and make commons sexy again?
The idea of the commons is much older than capitalism. But somehow we got used to the opposite idea: that everything is private property unless stated otherwise. A lot of problems already have open source solutions, but those who need them not always can find them. How to complete that missing link to help the commons to fulfill their promises of a fairer, inclusive society?
Hack publicity from emotions: to commons with love. As Silke Helfrich put it, “turn the commons into a meme”. What about a common pool of communication resources? Let’s sketch ideas together.
“Free software or open source? GPL or BSD? A far more important choice now lies elsewhere"
Since the use of Free and Open Source Software began, proponents have argued and debated about the benefits and risks of various approaches to licensing and the balance between freedoms for end users and freedoms for software developers. Organizations such as the Open Source Initiative have developed criteria about what makes a license sufficiently open to be open source.
This session will briefly describe some of the variations that can be found within the bounds of open source, especially how they relate to Creative Commons licensing approaches. The core of the session will describe new threats to software freedom posed by increasing global use of cloud-based computing, the areas of ongoing concern and some of the solutions proposed to maintain and advance the objectives of open source and free software.
MyWorld, MyData, Myself
The boundaries between physical and digital space are blurring. The same goes for our physical and digital self. In the meantime, everything becomes 'smart'. Our phone, our car, our refrigerator. The smarter the refrigerator, the weaker the self, digital and physical. Individuals are losing control and at the same time feel happy under the corporate surveillance of our daily lives. Something is terribly wrong. Is it the notion of property? Should we start talking about control instead?

Living and Working in the Commons
Can you live your life totally in the commons? David Bollier and others have claimed that we need to "think like a commoner" in order to revive commons-based approaches to living, but what does that mean in real life?

In my work life, I'm the communications manager at CC, but I also live in a self-governing intentional community where we "live lightly and share resources" as one of our guiding values.
What does the commons look like in 2018? How can we move toward more ethical modes of consumption, live our values, and revive the ancient wisdom of the commons?

Open Licensing for the Public Good: CC licences in Intergovernmental Organizations
Following the establishment of CC IGO licences, a number of intergovernmental organizations, development banks and other major public interest bodies have sought to take advantage of the possibility to give greater access to their work. However, in parallel others - often for financial reasons - have either stuck to older models, or chosen paths which fall short of full open access. This session will present research into the current state of licensing of the outputs of public interest intergovernmental organizations, identify best practices, and open discussions on how we can do better.

WIPO Workshop: Education Treaty Mark-Up
One of the agenda items currently being considered by the World Intellectual Property Organization Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights is a possible treaty on exceptions and limitations for education and research. In this session, Members of the Copyright Reform Platform are invited to meet as a legislative drafting committee and “mark up” a draft Proposal for a Treaty on Copyright Limitations and Exceptions for Promoting Education and Research developed through a project of the Global Expert Network on Copyright User Rights

The draft, open for comment, is at http://tiny.cc/TERACCSumm

A background paper, also open for comment, is at http://tiny.cc/TERAPaper 

Participants are asked to review the draft and propose any amendments to be discussed in the workshop by using the "comment" (or "suggesting edits") function. The session will begin with opening statements by the drafters and then will transition into consideration of amendments proposed by the session participants article by article. The meeting will use Roberts Rules of Order, permitting a maximum of 3 minutes for each proposed amendment and then 3 minutes each for responses and clarifications from other participants. Votes will not be taken as such. All amendments will be further considered by the drafting committee toward the goal of creating a consensus document.

The product will be finalized at the Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest for release as a civil society proposal at the November 2018 meeting of the World Intellectual Property Organization Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights.

Making Free Culture With Free Software, and Designing for Remix: Digital + Analog Workshops to Make CC Movies & Collaborative Zines
In this session we'll be looking at creating Free Culture from both a digital and an analog perspective, in two concurrent workshops:

One on side, getting a hands-on introduction to making movies with Free Software, from Matt Lee of 'Orang-U: An Ape Goes To College'.
Bring a laptop running Blender, Inkscape and GIMP and a few video clips recorded from a smartphone, and learn how to use free software tools to make your own movie.

On the other side, Sam Muirhead will invite you to share stories, images and ideas around the topic 'Design for Remix.' Then, using typewriters, a rubber-stamp version control system, and a photocopier, we'll remix each others' work, and create our own individual zines from the commons we've built together.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Making free cultural works with free software
Presentation on making a feature length freely licensed movie using only freely licensed tools.
"Scott Peterson learns that his father, animal exporter Jefferson Peterson has died. In order to maintain his lifestyle and the freedom of his pet orangutan, James he agrees to attend his father's alma-mater in Boston. He uses his father's frequent donations as a barter that results in James attending college instead, while he pursues his electronics hobby and works in a bar."
Orang-U: An Ape Goes To College (2017) is a feature length movie made with free software and released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
 
Co-writer and director, Matt Lee will talk about the process and tools used to make the movie, and pose questions about the production of the upcoming sequel, Orang-U 2: Monkey Business.

Cut, Copy & Paste: use (analog!) open source collaboration to make your own Zine
Share your stories of creating, working with or remixing Free Culture - the good, the bad and the ugly.
Facilitated by Sam Muirhead, we'll be exploring what makes a work remixable, and how to design creative projects for participation... and we'll be doing it through remix and zine-making :)

Make a how-to guide, draw a picture, write a poem... Then find someone else's work to remix!
In this workshop you'll get to grips with Open Source collaboration, and its potential for limitless artistic creation. All using analog version control system tools no more complicated than scissors, rubber stamps and a photocopier.

Then you can take home your own DIY publication: a zine, built upon the work of others, but created according to your own perspective and interests.

Get Started Producing OER: NDLA, Norway, Has Done It at Scale for 10 Years and We Want to Share!
A government initiative in 2006 gave birth to NDLA - a really big investment in open educational resources. 10 years have passed and a substantial amount of money has gone into the further development of NDLA. Today we house 50 subjects and 100 000 learning resources averaging 60 000 daily user sessions, not counting our popular Youtube accounts. We have built production tools, modules, designs, interaction and structures and we have helped cofund third party companies (h5p.org) - all part of the open education movement. This means that you can start producing content rather than producing platforms and tools. This also means that we can co-operate and get better together.
Equally important is the experience and competence we have gathered through 10 years in terms of policies, guidelines, licensing policies… everything is documented and can be shared with you for adaption. No need to start from scratch!
We would like to support and assist open education initiatives. Feel free to contact us if you are thinking about setting up your own educational website. By developing standard tools, formats and platforms we can tap into the real values of working together using creative, open licensing.

The Future of Digital Archives
Panel of representatives of the open movement and (big and small) digital archives who will imagine, discuss and reflect about what the future of digital archives could look like. The discussion will consider the different perspectives involved: technological, philosophical, user/contributor, stewards/curators/managers, legal.

The panel discussion will explore the kinds of systemic changes we'd like to see and need in order to enable getting more digital archives into the commons, as well as making these archives more accessible. With contributions from other tracks into the roles each of these areas of work could contribute to creating these systemic changes, it will highlight the interplay between the roles of legal, educational and GLAM institutions, as well as innovations in technology and accessibility/usability.

Possible issues that the panel might discuss relate to the technical relationship between the different archives (common metadata, different technologies that do/don't interact), collaboration and cooperation between the organizations and people involved, small archives and archives of underrepresented communities.

Giving Authors Control: How to Retain and Regain Your Copyright
Authors face a variety of challenges when seeking to publish their scholarly works consistent with open access policies and principles, and academic norms. Rather than focus on research and publication, academics often find themselves forced to navigate a legal thicket including intricate and one-sided publisher agreements that strip them of control over their research and scholarly works well into the future, all without having adequate resources and support during the submission process. Many scholars lack the resources, legal tools, and support necessary to assess and arrive at thoughtful decisions about publishing their works. The same is true for those dedicated to helping them, including librarians.
This session will delve into the practical realities of open access publishing from the perspective of authors and those who support them. We will explore strategies for how the community might best focus its efforts to change the culture and practices that impede scholars from sharing on their own terms with the fewest barriers possible. In this two-part workshop we will review goals and issues associated with simplifying and reducing barriers for authors, clarify where we should be heading and challenges from from various perspectives, and introduce new and existing tools intended to help scholars and the community retain and regain their rights to their works. Second, we will actively workshop solutions and strategies to address three practical impediments facing authors, librarians and other scholarly communications supporters: identifying knowledge gaps and how to best fill them, advocacy and new (or improved) legal tools, and identifying strategies and tactics for engaging constructively with traditional publishers. This will feed into the work we plan to do internationally to support the international research community.

Sustainable Science Cannot Co-Exist With the Scientific Article
System design influences behaviour by definition; the design of scholarly communication also influences science. Issues pertaining to selective publication, reproducibility, accountability, preservation, and exclusivity are caused by the limitations of the paper-based design of scholarly communication and threaten its sustainability. With decentralization initiatives for the Web, the time for a redesign of science is now and can make progress on many of the aforementioned issues. I showcase initial work on designing infrastructure for a global, inclusive, decentralized scholarly commons.

Community-Driven Marketing for Global Projects (or How Wikipedia Let Volunteers Direct National Marketing Campaigns)
It's easy to think that everyone, everywhere knows about Wikipedia. But recent research shows a massive global awareness gap. While 87% of US internet users have heard of Wikipedia, just 27% of Nigerian (and 33% of Indian) internet users can say the same. Without high awareness, Wikipedia usage (and therefore knowledge contributions) drop dramatically. So in 2017, the non-profit behind the world's biggest free knowledge source tried something surprising: marketing. And we did it true to our collaborative culture, empowering community volunteers to drive creative decisions. It worked.

Women's movement around the world are getting more attention each day, as they have been able to make demands for progress in a variety of fields that go far beyond just being "a women's issue". However, this movement is not new and has a long theoretical tradition on its back. In this session, we'll explore the different ways in which feminist theories can help us achieve CC's goal of building a global, diverse and participatory movement that challenges the traditional notions of copyright while building usable commons.

What Good Are CC Licenses If They Are Applied Incorrectly?
In this session we will discuss practical solutions for the misuse of Creative Commons licenses by Cultural Heritage Institutions(CHIs). In 2018 Kennisland published a research report that found that CC Licenses are often inaccurately applied. Inaccurately applied CC licenses set conditions on the use of works that are already freely available. In this session we will discuss what we CHIs could do to improve the application of Creative Commons as well as how to enable the accuracy of the rights status of digital objects in case they enter the public domain.

The Big Open: Working Together to Create a More Inclusive Open Internet Movement. A Workshop Hosted by Wikimedia, Mozilla & CC
The Open Movement has strong players like Wikimedia, Creative Commons, and Mozilla. We share a similar mindset, attend the same events and advocate for an “open by default” world. In 2017, we started a conversation around three questions: How do we make the open internet revolution irresistible? How do we build the community of the open? And how, as activists of the free and open web, do we talk to non-technologists about our world?

We’d like to continue this discussion at CC Summit – with you! This workshop brings the conversation about the Big Open from the main stage to all the participants.
We'll be grateful for filling out a short form that will let us better understand the interests of participants in our session: http://bit.ly/bigopen2018.

We will work in small groups to answer following questions:

How did the open movement invite you in? Did (do) you find the open/commons movement an open and welcoming space, or not? What might we learn from our own experiences joining and staying in the movement, which might help us build for the future?
   
What other movements do we want to collaborate with, and how can we make our movement more open/welcoming? Is the open/commons movement currently collaborating with other movements (and which ones)? What are good examples of interdisciplinary, cross-movement collaboration?   

What language and stories have gotten you interested/involved in movements and issues in the past? What kind of language/stories might we use to make the open/commons movement more welcoming & inclusive? What have we seen work?  

Who do we mean when we say we want to invite ‘non technologists’ in?  What connections to those people’s lives and experiences can we identify?  
   
What are the specific diversity and inclusion challenges for the Big Open movement? Where do we see the most urgent gaps in/needs for diversity? Why? How might we start to address these gaps?  

How might we connect the open/commons movement to political issues or moments in our countries? What and where are the opportunities and challenges with this? What have we seen work?

CC Open Education Platform
DRAFT Agenda (comments welcome).
Remote Participation: Video / Audio: Periscope  //  Chat via Twitter: #ccopenedu
At last year’s summit we explored the development of issue-based platforms that will be run by the CC global network. In that meeting, we started the CC Open Education Platform. This is the annual in-person meeting of the CC Open Education Platform (730 members and growing). If you would like to join the Platform - come on in. You are most welcome!

Help us identify, plan and coordinate multi-national open education content, practices and policy projects to collaboratively solve education challenges. We will review our goals, discuss how to prioritize our list of proposed activities, explore potential funding, engage a "hot topic panel" on for-profit companies working with OER, and - most important - discuss how to activate and leverage the skills and expertise of our amazing group of open education leaders from around the world.

Effective Tools of Communication and Collaboration Within the Francophonic CC Community
Communication and collaboration in a community should start with a common project that can be easily worked and more advantageously shared. A more effective communication implies a common work with some helpful tools. the translation process adopted for the 4.0 licences left some members with a good sense of communication between existing and future chapters within a common ground language. As for the other side of the process, it was organized in Africa to include the greater part of the francophonic community. This lead to the creation of a journal and the creation of new CC Chapters etc.

Certifying Open Source Hardware: Norm Setting in Complex IP Environments
Inspired by open source software, the open source hardware community has often struggled with the complex licensing landscape surrounding hardware.  Copyright licenses alone cannot fully cover hardware because copyright law protects hardware in inconsistent and sometimes unpredictable ways.  The Open Source Hardware Association has developed a certification program intended to help fill the gaps.  The certification program guides creators through licensing decisions and provides an alternative way to quickly check if hardware has been effectively added to the commons.

CC licenses are widely used (and misused) inside the Maker, Open Hardware and Fab Lab Community. This signals the reliability of CC on the “Big Open” and reveals an opportunity for collaboration. While our Global Network seeks its expansion among many communities of traditional copyright users, the relation with other open communities is yet to explore.

Challenges in Building a Global Community Supporting Open Culture
LPI is a Canadian-based global non-profit supporting the growth of open source through education, careers, and building professionalism. It has delivered more than 400,000 certification exams since its formation in 1999.

Recently, LPI changed its bylaws to evolve into a membership-based governance model through which its certified practitioners elect the Board and determine the organization's direction. It is now in the process of developing a global membership program to accomplish this goal.

This session will identify and address the challenges faced in creating the infrastructure necessary to support this program, the approaches and solutions proposed, and the opportunities and benefits. Issues specifically to be addressed include:
  • International issues, from collection of dues to language diversity to the balance betwen global and local organization
  • Technical infrastructure, from the obvious needs of member management to communications, virtual meetings and secure voting
  • Promotion, outreach and ongoing engagement and support of members

Rights to Create, Rights to Consume: Libraries Can Help You With That
Libraries support creators and consumers. Librarians are actively engaged in content creation every step of the way, and we work to help what is created, be consumed. When it comes to academic publishing, we see a significant disconnect between how publicly-funded research is being created, and who ultimately gets to consume the products of that research. Using academic publishing as an example, learn from librarians from the academic and public spheres, about the issues we deal with on a regular basis, and why your local librarian can help you with your rights to create and to consume.

CC for Data Producers: What Does It Mean to Make Data Usable?
How might we help data* producers and providers** better share and reuse each others data legally, technically, and openly… in order to enable collaborative innovation and societal progress?

Creative Commons will report on progress made to answer these questions as part of its usability initiative, specifically findings from expert and group interviews with users and creators of open data. Session participants will participate in shaping the design phase, where we will be identifying opportunities for better design of how CC licenses are represented on the web, discussing questions such as:

  • What influence does policy have on data sharing?
  • How is access important to you?
  • If you had a magic wand, what would you create and why would that make people’s lives better?

Data is a new frontier for CC. What does the ecosystem look like? What should we be thinking about? Who should we talk to?

 * Definition for session purposes: “Data is a set of values of qualitative or quantitative variables used to interpret the world.”
** Here we’re focusing on researchers and their data -- policies requiring open data. This is our primary interest, but don’t want to limit discussion to this depending on who is in the room.

Joining Forces For Open
Overview

This workshop will engage participants in mapping out one or more open initiatives (chosen from Heritage and Culture, Visual Arts Publishing & Music, Education and Learning, Medicine and Healthcare, Housing and Shelter, Food, Income and dignified work opportunities) that have a value proposition that requires multiple open orgs to join forces on to increase participation, impact and scale.

Details:

This workshop will use structural elements from the Human Project and Doughnut Economics to frame big picture future thinking around one or more specific projects multiple open orgs can join forces on to generate bigger impact and scale.

The Human Project and Doughnut Economics will be briefly described to participants as a frame and a way of thinking for the workshop.

Workshop participants will rank which open areas have the greatest multi-organization collaborative potential from the following:
  • Heritage and Culture
  • Visual Arts, Publishing, and Music
  • Education and Learning
  • Medicine and Healthcare
  • Housing and shelter
  • Food
  • Income and Dignified work opportunities

Depending on ranking participants will be divided by interest into 1-3 working groups.

Each working group will use the following questions from the Human Project as the frame for defining 1-3 major open initiatives best fulfilled through multiple open organziations joining forces. Framing questions are:
  • What is the challenge multiple open orgs can address that aren’t being addressed individually?
  • What’s at stake if multiple organizations don’t come together? Whats at stake if we succeed vs not doing it all?
  • What is the ultimate goal?
  • 2050 milestones?
  • How do we kick this into gear?
  • Who is already on the case? What resources are they making available? What resources are needed/missing?
  • What is one “What if .. ?” that tells the story of meeting this challenge?

Outputs will be used as the basis for one or more ongoing multi-org collaborative initiatives that will continue on after the Summit. Participants will be invited to shape outputs post-summit into tangible projects for presentation within open orgs to generate support and for which funding can be sought.

Cities, Community Organizers, and Creative Commons: Moving from the digital space to the urban landscape
 
"Sharing" has made an incredible resurgence in the past decade though its commercialization has not always had a positive effect. Cities and community organizers all over the world are already acting upon an alternate vision of sharing — one based on growing both the digital and urban commons. The Creative Commons community is uniquely positioned to further support this burgeoning culture shift already underway.

(Re)defining Users Rights Through Licenses
Contractual restrictions, including contractual definitions that purport to restrict the extent of concepts of the law, are a threat to users rights. Only a small number of countries have provisions to make contractual terms that prevent or restrict copyright exceptions unenforceable. In this session we will present examples of such terms contained in educational licenses in Europe. We will discuss if restrictive license terms shall be enforceable and if circumventing such terms shall be unlawful. Finally, we will present recent case law that interpreted the scope of non commercial sharing in the CC licenses, what it means to properly attribute a creator, and how fair use and other exceptions and limitations to copyright work alongside the CC licenses.

Conversations With Real Users and Creators Across the Spectrum
Using a human-centered design interview framework, we will host small group conversations with session participants about how we share online content today and how we see it changing in 2018 and beyond. Topic areas include online sharing behaviors, motivations, and first-time experiences sharing with CC. 

These conversations will be coded into a larger dataset part of the Discovery phase of CC’s usability work, where we will be identifying opportunities for better design of how CC licenses are represented on the web. The central questions underpinning this session are:

  • What’s on the mind of real users and creators? 
  • How can we anticipate and design for the future of sharing on the web?

Group conversations will be led by CC staff and may be recorded for research purposes, or captured in note form.

Open Pedagogy: An Introduction and Invitation for Collaboration
Open educational practices encompass not only the creation, adaptation, and adoption of open educational resources (OERs), but also open pedagogy. But what, exactly, is open pedagogy? Does it necessarily include the use of OERs or open licensing? This interactive session will draw on a diverse set of examples to introduce open pedagogy and help develop a shared understanding what it looks like in practice. Participants will be invited to share examples from their own context and challenged to strengthen and maximize the impact of their own work by actively inviting collaboration.

Open GLAM Platform Outline
Platforms are the area in which the Creative Commons Global Network (CCGN) work together, cooperate and collaborate towards shared goals, within the network and in collaboration with other people or organizations. If you're new to CC and this is your first Summit, make sure to take a look here to understand what platforms are and the way in which they operate.
This session in particular is about the Open GLAM Platform. In CC Summit 2017 we discussed how an Open GLAM Platform would look like and we produced a document that was later distributed and commented among several people from the GLAM movement.
In this session we will close that document, comment on some of the ongoing activities at CC that are in connection with this platform, identify key activities to undertake between 2018-2019, and establish ways and ladders of participation for people that want to join this platform.  
Session Outcomes:
  • Make connections between current Open GLAM advocates & practitioners inside the CC Global Network.
  • Understand what “platforms” are and why and how Creative Commons can involve with the Open GLAM community.
  • Identify ladders of participation for volunteers and projects: how can someone get involved with CC Open GLAM Platform?
  • Identify priorities and activities that we wish to carry out as a platform during 2018-2019.
 
Agenda for the session
14 - 14.45    Introduction
= “Say your name, institution, area of interest”.
= Explain how the session will run and the expected outcomes.
= What are platforms? Why we insist so much on them?
= Brief report of last year discussions. State of the document for the Open GLAM Platform.
= What is CC currently working on for the GLAM sector? Certificates + Search.

14.45 - 14.55    Recap from other GLAM sessions
= Brief recap of the outcome of the GLAM sessions held at the Summit. What session leaders felt was the most important or challenging topic in their session? How do they think CC can help in addressing or overcoming those challenges?

14.55 - 15:20    Breakout groups discussion. Identify activities, topics and vacant areas
= Question 1: what activities could CC do with the GLAM sector for promoting version 4.0 of the licenses?
= Question 2: what materials or activities do you feel that could be developed by CC to help you in your advocacy with the GLAM sector?
= Question 3: how can we engage and bring other people into this Platform?

15:20 - 15:30    Brief recap of the group discussion & follow-up
= Conclusions of the breakout discussion
= Invite to join slack channel #cc-openglam

Enabling Educators, Not Serving as Copyright Cops
CC advocates shouldn’t unintentionally act as “copyright cops”, reinforcing the idea that only licensed uses are “safe” because  this unnecessarily skews what OER covers and how it is taught.

Core copyright limitations like  quotation, fair dealing, and fair use cover some uses of third party materials in OER.  This session will focus on 3-4 specific use cases where images, excerpts, and other material would be included in an OER and discuss why these could still be included in an otherwise-CC licensed OER without reducing its global reach.

Building Communities of Practice: How States are Fostering Collaboration and Improvement of CC Licensed PreK-12 OER
Fostering the adoption, reuse, and improvement of comprehensive CC licensed open educational resources is an ongoing challenge, but emerging practices in the United States may show several pathways toward better sharing and adapting PreK-12 OER across contexts. The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and New America will highlight lessons learned from ongoing research and interviews that spotlight how state leaders are building targeted communities of practice; adapting resources to their local contexts; and adopting policies to make it easy to find and use high-quality OER.

Between Marginalization and Mainstreaming: Copyright Alternatives in Cultural Industries Training
A growing number of post-secondary training programs prepare students for entrepreneurial careers in creative industries like the media, design, entertainment, or the visual and performing arts.  Some of these programs include core education in intellectual property and its exploitation. Others fold intellectual property models into training on licensing and distribution models or general industry advice.  This panel will apply an open-content-licensing lens to the experience of delivering cultural industries training to ambitious local up-and-comers.  In doing so, the panel will create a space for critical self-examination on possibilities for mainstreaming alternative approaches to copyright, rather than marginalizing them, in media & entertainment training.

CC Community Development Platform
Platform Working Document 


The CC Community Development Platform will discuss how do we organize better, what are the things we can work together on, and what are tools needed. The idea behind this platform is exactly that: identify what do we need and coordinating the efforts to make that happen.

We will discuss the goals for the platform: How to support the growing CC Community; how to provide research and resources about the state of the community; and how to provide resources to new members to participate in the CC Community.

Creative Commons and the Values Gap
It can be said that the central value of Creative Commons is generosity. Our licenses, tools and activities are designed to encourage and promote sharing and to empower others to do so. This is encoded in the tagline "When we share everyone wins" that serves as the title of our website. This philosophy aligns very well with the structure of network which has reduced distribution costs for most cultural goods to almost zero while adding immense value to the commons. Over the the past decade and a half of CC's existence we have seen many communities that embrace this idea of sharing flourish in unprecedented and sometimes unanticipated ways, and become an important element of the fabric of the everyday lives many around the world.

Yet at the same time we have also seen the concept of sharing being embraced by social networks and online platforms who primarily operate as profit-driven businesses. Online platforms that enable the sharing of content have become essential intermediaries that dominate the way a growing part of the world's population accesses culture and information. While they also embracing the idea of “sharing,” the same is not the case for the underlying value of generosity, growth, and health of the commons. Most of the platforms that provide today's infrastructure for sharing are for-profit corporations that have managed to monetize the sharing of content that they neither own nor produce, and lock it away for use only within their confined universe of users.

The emergence and economic success of these platforms has created a backlash among content creators and legacy intermediaries. They argue that online intermediaries capture a disproportionate amount of the value derived from the creators of culture and information. According to them there is a 'value gap' between the value derived by online platforms and the original content creators. To remedy this so-called "value gap", organized rights holders in both the US and the EU have recently intensified their attempts to undermine the liability privileges that online intermediaries enjoy. In doing so they attack fundamental tenets of the internet that have empowered many of the communities that share our ideas of sharing.

It appears that in this specific dispute at least, our values align us more with the interests of online intermediaries and less with the organizations representing creators and other rights holders. For an organization that seeks to empower creators and foster creativity, this is an interesting position to be in.

This session will discuss our values and our value proposition to creators in the light of the ongoing discussion about value creation in the online environment with key representatives from our community. It is intended to allow us to reflect on our ideas about content creation and distribution and its interplay with the commons.

“Free Trade” agreements and copyright policymaking in the dark: what we can do about it
AGENDA: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iccbUqSoNVrMMjdkc_SF0FGpHpGEGPAHmWpAyCr4KrU/edit#

Creative Commons has been following the development of several multilateral trade agreements such as the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (now known as the "Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership" CPTPP), and the EU-Mercosur Association Agreement. Each of these agreements have been negotiated in secret, potentially with major negative repercussion on the commons, user rights, and the public interest. We will outline the current situation with regard to these trade agreements in relation to copyright, and discuss future plans for intervention.

This session will consider the revival of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and its ramifications for copyright law and the Creative Commons. In particular, it will evaluate the withdrawal of the United States under President Donald Trump from the agreement, and the efforts of Australia under Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to push ahead with the Trans-Pacific Partnership - with the help of Japan. The session will explore the strategy of Canada under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about the Trans-Pacific Partnership – with the suspensions of a number of key provisions relating to intellectual property and investment, and the use of side-letters to guarantee cultural exemptions. It will also consider the implications of the Trans-Pacific Partnership for Indigenous intellectual property – particularly given the complaints by Maori Communities under the Treaty of Waitangi in New Zealand.
Since there are several ongoing agreements being negotiated, we'll divide up the session into a few parts – 20 minutes on NAFTA, 20 minutes on the TPP, and 20 minutes on South America and Europe.
We want to: 
1. share information about what's going on/get the state-of-play for each of the ones in progress now
2. surface common themes across each that are of interest and relevance to the CC community (and also specifically discuss the lack of transparency for all these, and what can be done)
3. identify CC community members that would like to work together on this going forward, and come up with some tactics for doing this in terms of tracking, analysis, intervention, collaborating with other orgs, etc.

Copywrong - a preformance to help identify the “dos” and “don'ts” of copyright rules in the arts
Copywrong is a “performance-as-tool” developed to help artists understand how they can overcome the complexity and obscurity of copyright*, that so many times prevents them from creating freely. The aim is to present this performative device as much as possible and, above all, to share its formula among artistic communities who wish to raise awareness and engage actively in the global debate towards a more fair and transparent copyright system for everyone.
