This presentation has been part of the SXSW session on the initiative of Cultural Commons Collecting Society (C3S). Panelists have been Jason Sigal (WMFU/FreeMusicArchive), Chris Zabriskie (composer) and Wolfgang Senges (C3S).

It's an introduction to motivation, goals and the concept of that yet to launch collecting society - the first one to fully integrate with CC.

Besides that, it will take the form of a European Cooperative Society. Therefore every single member will hold same voting rights.
