Costa Commons!

A team in Costa Rica is currently working on adapting the Creative Commons licences to Costa Rican copyright law. The team has now reached the public discussion phase, in which they ask for comments and feedback from the local community about the proposed Costa Rican licences.

The public discussion page that outlines the changes and asks for comments can be found here.

The Costa Rican team is led by Rolando Coto, Carlos E. Saborío Romero, the legendary Technollama Andrés Guadamuz, and Denis Campos. Andrés is a law professor at the University of Edinburgh and has also worked on the CC Scotland and upcoming Unified CC UK licences.

The team is hosted by the University of Costa Rica and you can find more information about the team and affiliate institution here.
