Abstract: "Creative Commons is a non-profit that offers an alternative to full copyright to help authors to share and build upon creative works. The book analyses the first questions raised by the introduction of Creative Commons licenses in different legal systems and constitutes an observatory of the accounting of « cultural diversity » through Internet actors self-regulation. Different themes are discussed, such as the adaptation to national specificities and legal systems, Creative Commons licenses on the creation process, the relation of this instrument with traditional copyright management, the originality of using metadata in rights expressions for information retrieval. "These contributions gather testimonies and analysis of project leads in charge of the licenses translation, dissemination and implementation in their national legal systems. These lawyers, law professors, students and Information Technology researchers are enthusiastic with the possibility of sharing and mixing creative works in a context of open access to information and culture for all."
