The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay is planning to set up a chapter of Creative Commons to provide easy access of educational and other content for Indians.
The Indian chapter of Creative Commons would be formally launched on January 26, 2007 at the IIT, Bombay campus. In the first phase, the Creative Commons licenses are likely to become more attractive for educational content for India. The Indian chapter of Creative Commons is already working on drafting versions of licenses that are more in tune with Indian culture and the legal system. Creative Commons offers a content licensing system that gives copyright owners the option to reserve only some of their rights.
