With a smile on her face, Maya Zankoul stepped in announcing the good news of getting a new job at telephone.com. (She has illustrations of this at her blog. You can check them here. ( http://mayazankoul.com/2010/04/15/new-job-musing/).
She paid LAUsocial a second visit introducing to us the Creative Commons. The Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that provides individual creators and institutions the ability to give a standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. As indicated in the Creative Commons website, “The Creative Commons licenses enable people to easily change their copyright terms from the default of “all rights reserved” to “some rights reserved.” ”
She also told us about her experience with the CC where after she shared her work with Naeema, they came up with a poster for the CC Beirut Salon event (http://mayazankoul.com/2010/03/31/announcing-cc-salon-beirut/) that took place yesterday. From news stations like Aljazeera (http://cc.aljazeera.net/ ) to bloggers and music bands like the Meen band, they all can share, add, and remix their work to get a better enhanced one! Because of Creative Commons, Maya Zankoul now has her comics translated to Arabic though they sound weird in Arabic! lol
As in the article on Yallastartup blog by Donatella, “we need to innovate , not only to preserve, we need to produce not only consume! “
