Deep Links --

Deep Links is a group weblog featuring pointers to news articles and weblog posts that spark the interest of EFF [Electronic Frontier Foundation] staff members. We aim to provide a bit of on-the-fly commentary to help contextualize issues, as well as links to useful background resources.

The topics we'll be exploring include intellectual property, privacy, free speech on the Net, technology and Internet architecture. The central questions driving these explorations: How does a particular development affect our rights? And how will it impact our future?

Nomen est Numen - "About me? Like everyone, my life could be summed up by suffering, impermanence, and non-self.... I'm a tall, skinny, bookish, tea-drinking morning person. I couldn't live without libraries. I like wandering outdoors. I meditate. I appreciate the beauty in strange and little things. I have a thing for motorcycles, though I've only had the pleasure of being a passenger. I write, constantly, although this is more for my own sanity than the enjoyment of others. I miss having animals about the house."

Too often the debate over creative control tends to the extremes. At one pole is a vision of total control — a world in which every last use of a work is regulated and in which "all rights reserved" (and then some) is the norm. At the other end is a vision of anarchy — a world in which creators enjoy a wide range of freedom but are left vulnerable to exploitation. Balance, compromise, and moderation — once the driving forces of a copyright system that valued innovation and protection equally — have become endangered species.

Creative Commons is working to revive them. We use private rights to create public goods: creative works set free for certain uses. Like the free software and open-source movements, our ends are cooperative and community-minded, but our means are voluntary and libertarian. We work to offer creators a best-of-both-worlds way to protect their works while encouraging certain uses of them — to declare "some rights reserved."

Thus, a single goal unites Creative Commons' current and future projects: to build a layer of reasonable, flexible copyright in the face of increasingly restrictive default rules.
