My CC Story

I was on the founding board of Creative Commons and served as a board member until April 2009, the last year as Chair. I use Creative Commons licenses on my articles, books and comic books. This has meant more readers for me, more people who adapt or translate my work, who use it in their teaching, assign it in their classes, or just pass it on to their friends and colleagues. For example, Bound By Law -- the comic book on fair use that I wrote with two co-authors -- has been downloaded by at least 200,000 people around the world. It has been mashed up with Larry Lessig's work in a video, translated into Italian and used in more ways than I could have dreamed possible.
