Who we are

- C.O.D.E is a nonprofit organization devoted to expanding the use of Creative Commons Licenses and to helping people better understand what copyright is and how it works for the enhancement of open culture in the digital era.

- Volunteers are the core asset of C.O.D.E. With their support and assistance, we have conducted various experiments and projects - e.g. public campaigns, workshops, seminars, etc. - in the areas of art, scholarship, public administration, education, media and others to spread the value of OPEN and SHARE to the public.

- As of 2011, more than 70 countries use CCL in their local languages. CCL was originally launched in the U.S. in 2002 and since then it has been fast spread throughout the world and has been widely used. CC affiliates including C.O.D.E have grown to form a global network of communities thanks to consistent international collaboration and exchange of ideas.

Why CCL Matters

- Originally, copyright law was intended to protect the interests of authors and creators and to give them incentives while contributing to cultural development of the society as a whole. But in the late 20th century, the emergence of information and communications technology (ICT) has changed this approach - it has blurred the boundaries between users and creators, allowed ordinary people to take a more active role as producers of creative works rather than being mere passive users.The new trend has brought greater innovation and creativity into the world, especially through the web.
To make it successful, there is a growing need for the copyright regime to reflect the new realities and take a different approach.

- In this sense, Creative Commons License was developed to enable people to open and share their work while retaining their copyrights, within the boundaries of copyright law, and hence to contribute to more creativity in the world. CCL is one of the internationally recognizable copyright licenses along with GNU General Public License (GPL).

- With a Creative Commons License, people can allow others to easily access and use their creations for wider distribution and for more use of those works for derivative works. We believe this virtuous cycle could benefit all stakeholders through an open system of sharing and creating knowledge, ideas and innovations.
