Thank you very much for your report Pradeep. It feels great to know
that the CC movement and the Wiki movement in India are working hand
in hand to achieve a common goal. I just hope that someday, Tier II
cities like Mysore, Coimbatore, which have a lot of cultural history
can be part of such events.

Today, we had the Mumbai event of Creative Commons. They are in India in
February visiting Pune, Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore.
We had a turnout of about 30-40 people today in Mumbai. We met at the Victor
Menzes Conference Center at IIT-Bombay.
We began with a brief on Creative Commons in India, a brief idea on the
various Creative Commons license and why to use it.
We covered extensive ground especially on areas that the Creative Commons is
now being applied in - Culture, Education, Government and Science.
All in all, a good day with many Wikipedians in Mumbai turning up. Thank you
Our thanks to Prof. Shishir Jha of IIT-Bombay for help with getting the
venue. We'd like to thank Jessica Coates and Jane Hornibrook of Creative
Commons for spending time talking to us. They also expressed hope that they
would be able to revive CC-India and an associated mailing list.
