For the last year and a half, Creative Commons staff Sarah Hinchliff Pearson and Paul Stacey have been writing a Kickstarter backed book about sharing and open business models called Made With Creative Commons.  

This book is being globally released May 5, 2017 at madewith.cc. In advance a print version is being distributed to all Global Summit attendees along with an invitation to distribute additional copies to libraries around the world. 

In this session Ryan Merkley, CEO of Creative Commons, interviews Sarah and Paul to explore the impetus for the book, the interactive process by which it was created, and what they learned.

You’ll hear about twenty four Made With Creative Commons case studies from all over the world who are sharing work using Creative Commons licenses and encouraging the public to reuse them, to copy them, to modify them. 

But if they are giving their work away to the public for free, how do they make money? 

How do you sustain what you do when you share your work? 

In this session Paul and Sarah share what they learned in answer to those questions. They describe how this work changed their perspectives and how Made With Creative Commons became a book about what sharing really looks like -- why we do it and what it can bring to the economy and the world.
