The Art of the Creative Commons is a book about peer-to-peer production, providing a unique model of commons from the creative industries. The book expands the knowledge about the role in which an alternative framework of copyright protection (Creative Commons) regulates and establishes norms and conventions within the commons. The book gives insight into a vibrant community that fosters creative projects and a variety of works, from elementary school plays to exhibitions in the Smithsonian or multimillion-dollar Hollywood films.
Taking up the perspective of the creative workforce involved in production and collaboration allows us to understand the rules of production that follow an alternative model of production. By analyzing issues of media production, this book engages with current scholarship on critical management, political economy and cultural studies.
