Subject: Public Discussion for Version 4.0 of the CC Licenses Underway
Reply-To: "Creative Commons" <>

Dear CC Supporter, 

We are very pleased to let you know that after a full year in the planning and preparation phase, 
we have launched the public discussion process for Version 4.0 of the Creative Commons license 
suite. As someone who is interested in the future of CC, we invite you to participate in this 
discussion, which you can read more about here.

Stewardship is not a responsibility that CC takes lightly; nor is it a responsibility that anyone 
in our community can take lightly if we are to be successful in promoting the open values we 
share. Our licenses provide the infrastructure on which communities like Wikipedia, Flickr, Open 
Courseware, and the Public Library of Science depend and, still more importantly, thrive. Our 
charge as license stewards is to ensure a healthy and transparent discussion process that 
accounts for and anticipates shifts in public policy and legal developments taking place around 
the world. Unfortunately, that work isn't free.
If license versioning is not up your alley, you can still show your support by donating to our 
annual campaign going on now. Our legal efforts are on your behalf. Help support CC at this 
critical juncture, where we are building the license suite on which all of us will depend for the 
next decade and beyond, and help us achieve our goal of creating the most robust license suite 
We look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes for a happy holiday season,

Diane Peters
CC General Counsel
p.s. Don't forget to let your friends and family know that all CC donations will be matched, 
dollar-for-dollar, through December 25 up until $100,000!
