Event Description

The University of Pretoria has invited Dr Tobias Schonwetter, legal head of Creative Commons South Africa, to give a presentation on the impact of the Creative Commons licenses on Open Access and what Creative Commons is doing to build an ecosystem of openness.

Creative Commons licences are arguably the most widely used open licences available for literary and musical works. Through a series of different licences, Creative Commons licences allow content creators to keep or give away a variety of rights under copyright law.

Dr Tobias Schonwetter is a postdoctoral research fellow. Tobias studied and practised law in Germany and San Francisco, USA and holds PhD and LLM (with distinction) degrees from UCT. He specialises in copyright-related issues and is a country lead researcher and one of the Principal Investigators for the African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) project.
