Creative Commons Salon, Montréal - 21.12.2010

The first Creative Commons Salon Montreal is taking place on December 21, 2010, at Sala Rossa! Mark your calendars, doors open at 5.30pm. Arrive early for mingling and yummy food, catered by 1000 Oysters. Talks start at about 7pm. And it’s free free free!!!

The theme is open culture. We are going to talk open education, open web, web standards, licensing and the change that occurred on the internet, open publishing, open culture, remixing, video, DJing, and food. Here’s the lineup:

* Martha Rans, Creative Commons Legal Lead
* Mark Surman, Executive Director, Mozilla Foundation (via Skype video)
* Karl Dubost, La Grange
* Gilles de Saint-Exupery, Propriété intellectuelle, juriste
* Jon Phillips, Sharism
* Christopher Adams, Freesouls
* Christine Prefontaine + Emily Rose Michaud, Artefatica Open Publishing
* Jeremy Clarke, Global Voices

Then at 10pm the party starts with DJs and VJs galore… all of whom use CC licenses to distribute their work:

* Bowly Sharivari
* Fiberglass Pants
* Ouananiche
* celinecelines

The point? To raise awareness about Creative Commons, especially among content creators — writers, artists, musicians, photographers, you name it. And to lay the foundation for ongoing, semi-annual events. Keep the party going :)

Thanks to our event sponsors:

* Vincent Gautrais, Chaire de l’Université de Montréal en droit de la sécurité et des affaires électronique
* Sharism
* Mozilla Drumbeat
