Creative Commons uses private rights to create public goods: creative works set free for certain uses. Like the free software and open-source movements, their ends are cooperative and community-minded, but their means are voluntary and libertarian. They work to offer creators a best-of-both-worlds way to protect their works while encouraging certain uses of them - to declare "some rights reserved."

This Washington, D.C. based group works with wide spectrum of stakeholders-libraries, educators, scientists, artists, musicians, journalists, consumers, software programmers, civic groups and enlightened businesses-to promote the core conviction that some fundamental democratic principles and cultural values-openness, access, and the capacity to create and compete-must be given new embodiment in the digital age.

Founded in 1922 as the trade association of the American film industry, the MPAA has broadened its mandate over the years to reflect the diversity of an expanding industry. The initial task assigned to the association was to stem the waves of criticism of American movies, silent at the time, and to restore a more favorable public image for the motion picture business.
