Microsoft donates to CC

Creative Commons ( a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works. mostly digital content) held a fundraiser at the end of 2005, guess who put them over the top…

From Lawerence Lessig’s Blog:

At 12:30pm, an envelope from Redmond appeared at the Creative Commons office. Inside, a check for $25,000. From Microsoft.

We’ve made our target in the most (pleasantly) surprising of ways. Thanks to everyone who helped on this, and especially those who pulled so hard at the end. Of course, more will still help lots, so no reason to stop now.
