CREATIVE COMMONS GLOBAL SUMMIT 2019 – LISBON

I am one of the presenters at the Creators of the Commons Lightning Talks session for this year’s Creative Commons Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

The focus of my 15-minute talk is as follows:
CC Profiles in Arts & Entertainment Frontiers – How are license holders innovating the usage of Creative Commons rights in commercial cultural fields where they are not in wide usage? Science fiction fantasy author Eva L. Elasigue will discuss her use of CC in the realm of book and story publishing, from internet serialization, platform partnership, artistic collaboration, to print products. She will also bring word of other creative project innovators from the science fiction fantasy media genre and beyond.

I am deeply honored to be a scholarship recipient in order to attend this meeting, which will also be my first visit to Portugal. Thankful for this recognition by the creative rights movement I’ve loved since its inception, that is designing copyrights that work the way I thought they already did in the innocence of my youth.

 

Creative Commons Global Summit 2019 Lisbon

I am deeply thrilled to announce that I am going to be a speaker at the 2019 Creative Commons Global Summit in Lisbon, Portugal! Thanks to their scholarship program, I’ll be able to attend and contribute along with other pioneers in many disciplines relating to open creative rights. There’s a revolutionary variety of ideas and resources, developing with custom strategies made possible with the legal innovation of Creative Commons licenses.

We’re going to work on developing my contribution to the program. This will begin on a foundation of my multi-platform CC-enabled release strategy as a fiction author, and extend to other projects I’m related to which are leveraging Creative Commons in their own niche, providing a network-local snapshot of how usage is developing within the current wave of rights holders and new manifestations of media. Let me know what you would like me to bring to the discussion! Your unique experiences related to CC (however seemingly minor), even ideas or simple feedback. I know a growing group of broadcast platform users, large-project participants, and alien-ouvre standard bearers. You can inform how we craft this information into presentation for a wider global community. Even follow the image link and join us in Portugal!

Thank you all, and I accept the pleasure of this work for discussions on creative opportunity development.

Creative Commons 2017 Global Summit

Since I began releasing Bones of Starlight online in 2014, Creative Commons has been the licensing entity assuring my authorship, and your readership.  It created a safe environment for me to air my work, and maintain the motivation to complete the first book (and let us say, those after).

I used the same kind of license for the printed work, and I love seeing it there on the copyright page, a sort of affirmation from the first time Creative Commons made perfect sense to me.  It still does.  Collaboration with artists is made easier, and that’s how I’m able to include such excellent images.

Last year’s Creative Commons panel at MidAmericon 2 was a great experience.  It’s now time to strengthen the connection between my work and this growing movement, so that I can also bring Creative Commons to people for whom it makes sense.

I’m glad to be here.  I’m glad it’s here.
