Catherine Stihler: Creative Commons license

This post is a collection of quotes from Catherine Stihler in an interview on the Walled Culture podcast in 2022 titled Catherine Stihler: Creative Commons, the EU Copyright Directive, and Civil Society's Role. The video for this interview can be found at this link. I recommend listening to the interview. There are 3 quotes listed below chronologically.


1. "I think from our perspective, we see the value through openly sharing content works in terms of no knowledge is built alone, but knowledge is built on other knowledge, and creativity is built on other creativity. " (27:51)


2. "The difference that we have is that [Creative Commons licenses] enable creators to be where they want to be, as an enabler to allow that sharing to create perhaps other works, but also to be able to get your works out in a space and place where you have also power over how that is used and reused in the way that you want it to be. That didn't exist really 20 years ago in the way that we've enabled it to exist today..." (28:20)


3. "Our values drive that openness and that sharing because we see that value in why we want the world to have an improved commons of knowledge, culture, creativity because that then builds on other things and that creates and improves and keeps that cycle of creativity, of thinking, of thoughtfulness, of energy, of renewal, of new ideas and maybe the word innovation." (29:20)
