Public Knowledge is a public interest advocacy organization in Washington, DC that seeks to ensure that copyright law and communications policy promote creativity, free speech, and democratic values.
Eyebeam was born at a time when the technologies that now form the bedrock of daily life were just beginning to expand into wider arenas. A key component of Eyebeam’s mission is to support public access through open-source projects and collaboration.
This collaboration between the two organizations, which are looking at many of the same issues, will result in real-world, tangible, outcomes which I hope will significantly impact the public discourse around open culture and Fair Use. I’ll be documenting the process and hope you will join me in this exciting new initiative!
