Many artists, activists and Mexican projects use and promote CC licenses. Though, there are still a number of problems surrounding their implementation in academia, government and industries. This may happen of course due the absense of a unified CC community, but also due to a set of public policies and weak author's rights culture enabling the unproportionate raise of collecting societies and monetary based intermediation. This is a reading of the complex, while exciting, mexican CC culture scenario amidst an upcoming renovated widespreadal of the CC movement in LATAM.

Latin American countries face common challenges regarding the evolution of the internet, culture protection or information access. In order to boost regional collaboration, for the recognition of equal elements and situations that can be used as a diagnosis to work on in coordination among the CC chapter in the region, we consider the Summit to be a perfect venue to launch the discussion. As a region composed by several countries, each of them with particular realities but often consider to have one unique identity, it is also a great chance to introduce everyone to our differences and goals.
