Registered Commons

Registered Commons seems like one logical next step for Creative Commons to me. It both helps promote the idea of a Creative Commons and makes this innovative approach to intellectual property rights more usable.

Why register your work?

Authors and re-mixers need trust when publishing in the Internet. Registered Commons provides a permanent link to the work, its license and a digital timestamp. No matter if it's photography, poetry, a series of blog entries or an open source software project: Now anybody can have secure evidence about the author's permission for re-using it.


Joe Benso has produced an audio feature about Registered Commons. Listen to his motivation, to use the service:

Producers can claim, when exactly they have created or published their work. And if you want to use the material, you have secure evidence about the conditions.
