safeCreative.org is working to build a free and open global intellectual property registry that allows users to publicly assert and identify their rights over a work. They are hiring a “geek-lawyer” type to help build the US Blog, translate the FAQ and reach out to the US market. The project supports CC licensing, and it’s definitely making important strides in authenticating creative works.
If I was not doing my last year of full time law school next year, I would apply. This is a great opportunity to work with an international tech savvy company that is on the right side of the copyright. I met Mario and a few other members of the safeCreative.org team at the Google Tech Summit, they were great! If you’re interested, details are available here.
