Web 2.0 Organizations

The Digital Future Coalition strives to find “an appropriate balance in law and public policy between protecting intellectual property and affording public access to it.”  Created in 1995, this 42-member group is made up of academic and professional organizations  and monitors and advocates on intellectual property issues. 

Founded in 2001 as a response to the tensions caused by copyright issues raised by digital developments, this organization developed the Creative Commons License to provide creators a way to protect their work while at the same time encouraging open and creative use of it through a “some rights reserved” licensing.  In addition to explaining the Creative Commons license and providing a easy system for using it, the site also offers links to Creative Commons-licensed media
