*Brazilian Ministry of Culture removes Creative Commons licenses from its
website*



Since 2003, the Brazilian Ministry of Culture website’s content has been
posted under a Creative Commons license, but the new Ministry has removed
the Creative Commons logo from its website.  The removal occurred shortly
after the publication of an open letter asking for the continuation of
copyright reforms that were adopted or were under discussion during the
government of Lula, and which would have expanded limitations and exceptions
to copyright.  Therefore, the removal has been interpreted by the Brazilian
civil society as a sign of the inflexibility of Minister Ana de Hollanda,
who opposes the reforms. Click here for
