The translation of the fourth edition of Creative Commons 4.0 licenses in Greek was completed, which was done in collaboration with the Cypriot and Greek Creative Commons.
Creative Commons licenses are a set of standard copyright licenses that allow authors to distribute their work freely to the public. These licenses vary and the creator has the ability to choose the one that best suits his needs.
Creatives of all kinds, academics, researchers, teachers, artists, bloggers, public institutions, libraries, archives, museums, state and private entities use Creative Commons licenses to disseminate their works on the Internet free of charge, under terms they understand and deem appropriate , while at the same time assuring that these users will respect the terms of the license and be bound by it.
Creative Commons licenses were incorporated into Greek law by 2007 from a working group whose scientific supervision was held by the then president of the Intellectual Property Organization, Professor of the University of Athens, Dionysia Kallinikou. The translation of the 4.0 edition of Creative Commons licenses into Greek is expected to be a valuable tool for disseminating scientific, literary and artistic creation in Greece and Cyprus.
To promote the Creative Commons goals, volunteers are headed by local teams in each of the national jurisdictions for which Creative Commons licenses have already been customized. Creative Commons International and volunteer leaders of local groups are independent and separate entities, but they also work together to contribute to the adoption of the licenses and tools offered by Creative Commons.
