Copyright law is central to three activities for CC advocates: (1) explaining the function of the licenses themselves and (2) advocating for laws and polices that support the creation of openly licensed materials, and (3) arguing for copyright flexibilities and copyright law reform. However, copyright education and policy advocacy can seem technical and separate from many users and creators core interests. This workshop brings together CC members who have worked to build coalitions around copyright or open policy advocacy topics and discuss successes and failures in public copyright education.
