Inspired by Creative Commons' 10th birthday in December 2012, CC Europe proudly presents:

Creative Commons 10 years anniversary mixtape

 CC10 Mixtape Cover (small)

Creative Commons is turning 10 this year. Therefore Creative Commons communities all over the world will be hosting a series of events and sharing party favors online for a ten-day celebration!

In December 2002 Creative Commons released its first set of copyright licenses for free to the public. In the years following the initial release, Creative Commons and its licenses have grown at an exponential rate around the world. The licenses have been further improved, and ported to over 50 jurisdictions. With some major platforms adopting the Creative Commons licenses and version 4.0 of the licenses around the corner, this anniversary is the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past ten years, but also to look ahead to the future!

One of the opportunities for Creative Commons to continue its rapid evolution is more collaboration between the various affiliates. During the Creative Commons regional meeting in Helsinki earlier this year we've decided to use the 10 year anniversary to make a joint contribution to the festivities in the form of a CC-Europe mixtape. Each country nominated a couple of songs and an expert panel of CC affiliates has picked one song per country for the final compilation. In total we've received contributions from 20 countries! The participating affiliates are Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

The resulting mixtape can be found at Free Music Archive, Soundcloud and Archive.org and is available for download under various Creative Commons licenses.
