As far as I know, the website, managed by the National Heritage Board, is the only government agency-related site that has adopted the Creative Commons license.

Presentation at HIP Parent Seminar

Fyi, dear readers of the CC Singapore blog, I will present on “youth and user-generated content (UGC)” at an event for parents and educators this Saturday, organized by IPOS and the HIP (the Honour Intellectual Property alliance).

I will be speaking as an NUS lecturer, and not as CC Singapore, though I will talk about CC as well and how it provides a solution for legal sharing and reuse.

But the focus of my presentation will be on the opportunities and dangers of UGC, in an effort to educate parents on the associated risks (which extend well beyond copyright), but also to suggest that they should encourage their children to post/remix content and through that improve their media literacy skills. 

I’m curious how this will be received by the audience, but in any case it sets a nice precedent for working together with IPOS on IP-related matters.

CC-Adopter: Preetam Rai

Preetam is no stranger to Creative Commons. He was one of the early adopters, displaying a CC license on his blog even before the porting over of the Singapore version.

He’s changed his blog templates several times. This is the current incarnation :)
