Professor Sean Flynn and Creative Commons USA Public Lead Meredith Jacob represented PIJIP at Wikimania 2019 this month in Sotckholm, Sweden.

Flynn organized a session on Advocacy/Copyright Advocacy Mapping, in which participants mapped "where copyright reform is happening, who is engaged in it, what issues are being promoted by Wikimedians and what resources might be needed to better accomplish positive change."

Meredith Jacob and Creative Commons CEO Ryan Merkley hosted a session on "Attribution: Laws, Norms, and Communicating to the Public", which reviewed "recent discussions about attribution that have taken place in the Creative Commons community, the Wikipedia community, and with the public about the requirement under all CC licenses that content must be attributed." Jacob was also a panelist on the session GLAM/Public Domain Awareness Project: enhancing use of CC’s Public Domain tools to serve the needs of GLAM institutions and reusers.
