Microsoft and Creative Commons have teamed up to release the Creative Commons Add-in for Microsoft Office, a copyright licensing tool that enables the easy addition of Creative Commons licenses to works created in popular Microsoft Office applications. The software is available free of charge at Microsoft Office Online and will enable the 400 million users of Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Excel, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint to easily select Creative Commons licenses from directly within the application they are working in.

Creative Commons and the Fedora Project have teamed up to promote open video by launching a contest. Join us for a chance to win a Fedora-branded Sony Camcorder.
To make it fun for everyone, the first 150 submissions will receive a pair of handsome Fedora Flip-Flops.
How does it work?
. To participate, you will need to submit one short video, talking about freedom and openness.
. Be as creative as you wish, and don't limit yourself to advertisement videos.
. Fedora stands for Infinite Freedom, and any video dealing with the idea of freedom and openness qualifies.
. We have opened the floor to everyone who wants to express their ideas creatively - even if it be an abstract video.
. Your video should be in OGG Theora format, under 10 MB in size and under 30 seconds in duration.
. Your work should be released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License.
. Your work may only include original elements and elements in the public domain or released under terms compatible with Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 (i.e., any version/jurisdiction Attribution license or any jurisdiction Attribution-ShareAlike license version 2.0 or above).
. See our content curators page for links to a wealth of reusable audio, video, and images.
. The submissions will be accepted between 00:00 UTC June 20, 2006 and the winners will be notified by 00:00 UTC July 20, 2006.
By submitting your entry, you agree to be bound by the Official Rules so make sure you read them before you email your entry.
Want to throw your hat in? Simply email your video to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, email address and physical address with your submission - after all, we will need to notify the winner and send the prizes!
That's it! Now get that creativity flowing!
