Dear all

We would like to invite you to our event next Friday [1]. The event
takes place after a workshop of Communia [1]. Many project members of
Communia are also active for Creative Commons and they will join the
event. Therefore we expect to have some nice showcases and
discussions. Please spread the word about the event.



Friday, 23-01-2009 –  21:00 Uhr - Creative Commons Showcases - Movies,
Design and Music under free licenses

An ever increasing number of projects publish under Creative Commons
licenses and so build a common pool of content that is free to use.
Creative Commons Switzerland invites you to a relaxed evening of talk,
discussion and enjoyment, when we will present some of the most
successful European projects. We want to explore why these licenses
are important and what possibilities they offer.
