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.

Registered Commons getting attention in the science and research community

When publishing a scientific paper, authors may be requested to proof their authorship.  Which solutions are available?

At the Humboldt University Berlin, the project IUWIS was founded to deal with the growing uncertainty in the German research community on copyright questions. IUWIS is the abbreviation for “copyright infrastructure for research and education” (in German: „Infrastruktur Urheberrecht für Wissenschaft und Bildung“). The purpose of IUWIS is to provide an integrated information and communication platform on copyright issues for the German research community; to reduce the uncertainty about what is allowed when publishing, or employing copyrighted material for teaching; to help finding the best way to publish research outputs; and, last not least, to enable researchers to express their needs and problems with regard to the current copyright regime.

The IUWIS team is recommending Registered Commons as a service to proof authorship and the proof of availability of the original work. Since 2009, RC is offering service agreements and will extend its portfolio for research organizations and universities.
