> Creative Commons, the nonprofit organization that will develop ways
> for artists, writers and others to designate their work as freely
> shareable, debuted in mid-May. According to a story in the _New York
> Times_ (May 13, 2002), Creative Commons is founded on the belief that
> the expansion of legal protection for intellectual property could
> inhibit creativity and innovation. The main focus of Creative Commons
> will be on clearly identifying the material that is meant to be
> shared. Making it easier to place material in the public domain will
> encourage more people to do so, the founders believe. Lawrence
> Lessing, an intellectual property expert and professor at Stanford Law
> School, is chairman of Creative Commons; the board of directors
> includes James Boyle, an intellectual property professor at Duke Law
> School; Hal Abelson, a computer science professor at MIT; and Eric
> Saltzman, executive director of the Berkman Center for Internet and
> Society at Harvard Law School. For more information:
