2014 has been a big year for Creative Commons Aotearoa, and we couldn’t have done it without your help. Tena rawa atu koe.
Creative Commons news
Creative Commons Aotearoa is calling for Kiwis to have greater access to our nation’s taonga. To support this, we are creating new toolkits to help heritage institutions (as well as research institutions and schools) open up their collections.Let us know if there’s anything you’d particularly like to see included.
Latest from NZCommons
It’s all go over at NZCommons.org.nz! Learn about big developments at Te Papa and the National Library, the openly licensed digital Marsden collection, why politicians should use CC, and using CC as a professional illustrator. Have you thought about contributing a piece yourself?
We’re looking to appoint a new member of the Creative Commons Aotearoa advisory panel, someone with experience in copyright and GLAM. Learn more.
We’re coming to a town near you
In March 2015, and to support the roll-out of our new CC toolkits for schools and the heritage sector, we’ll be running a series of talks and workshops around the country. Stay tuned for more details in the new year.

CC around the world
Major international report State of the Commons is out now! The number of CC-licensed works around the world has risen from 50 million in 2006 to 882 million in 2014. The Gates Foundation has published its new Open Access policy requiring all data and research funded by the GF to be made immediately openly accessible from 2017.
Warmest season’s greetings to you all from us both (Matt and Elizabeth). We look forward to spreading the CC love even further with you in 2015!
