Hello Everyone

Early in 2004, the Creative Commons (CC) project was launched in Australia 
to help make copyright content more "active" by ensuring that content can 
be reutilised with a minimum of transactional effort.  Early next year 
there will be a  conference on the latest developments for the future of 
distributing, developing and negotiating rights in digital content.

I am sure that many fellow eprint folk will find this conference really
