Abstract

We give a chronology of Creative Commons Taiwan,up to its launch in September 2004,and provide the background and our experience in introducing Creative Commons licenses to Taiwan.We also give an account of the evolution of Taiwan’s Copyright Act. The launch of Creative Commons Taiwan is judged by us to be quite successful, and the planning of this event is briefly outlined in this paper. We now anticipate Creative Commons Taiwan facing the challenge of working closer with other government bodies and civil organizations in the further promotion of Creative Commons licenses in Taiwan.
