Why not use Creative Commons?
* We do not directly earn an income through Creative Commons... * … But using it does not hurt us and we know the community will profit.
3. Generating Income
Generating an income * On our ads revenue sites, we earn the same with Ads with or without using CC. * Byuing books licensed under CC makes sense to many customers.
* There are many indirect benefits like opportunities to co-work with individuals and companies on projects to a mutual benefit. * Creative Commons is a setting to facilitate cooperation in the content production sector.
4. Outlook and Goals
Outlook and Goals * To foster the Open Content community and increase usage of CC among partners and clients * To expand business activities around Open Content and publish more materials and books in cooperation with new and existing projects under CC. * To highlight CC through events and campaigns, e.g. photo competitions like “Advancing Vietnam” featuring people and ideas advancing Vietnam
Better Together. * Please visit us in the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh City or Cantho. * We offer every contributor to Open Source and Open Content a place in our new office, free Internet connection and unlimited Vietnamese coffee for the time of their visit!
