Jan 12: Knowledge Exchange Lunch Meeting

Professor Ying Chan, the Director of the JMSC, will speak at a Knowledge Exchange about the Creative Commons License on Wednesday January 12, 2011.

Professor Ying Chan

Creative Commons (CC) is an international system of intellectual property rights management through which creators can choose to distribute their work with “some rights reserved”.

CCHK’s goal is to serve Hong Kong’s diverse creative talents and enhance the development of knowledge industries in Hong Kong. In 2008, the JMSC worked with associate professors Alice Lee and Li Yahong of the Faculty of Law and community volunteers to bring CC to Hong Kong. Since then, more than 400,000 pieces of creative work have been licensed under CC in HK.

Professor Ying Chan, co-community lead of CCHK and director of JMSC, will discuss how Creative Commons licenses can be used, and how they help promote creativity and knowledge exchange. She will also discuss how the university community might want to use them to promote their own creative work or the work of students.

Creative Commons Hong Kong (CCHK) works with Creative Commons International <http://creativecommons.org/international/> to localise and promote the use of CC licenses in Hong Kong.

Venue: Room P-603, Graduate House
