On October 31st Thursday, CC Conference ‘공유본색(“The Real Face of Sharing”)’ was held at D.CAMP. It was an opportunity to listen to lectures from people with various background, learn ways of perceiving the essential of sharing from different angles, and imagine the possible changes that sharing can make together.
Many people presented even before the conference began. We had a short conversation with the audience to inform what CC is, especially for the first-time visitors. Some showed their interests to CC Korea pamphlets and leaflets.
Session 1. Firstly, Judge Yoon Jongsu gave a speech titled “The Relationship of Creation and Sharing,” about the cruciality of sharing in a strategical manner for a sustainable creation environment. According to him, the puropose of copyright and CC is not only for profits but also for incentives of various creation spectrum. Also, he insisted that we should blur the lines between the market and the non-market, and the value of non-market should be acheived through the proper function of the market.

The second topic was “Internet Activism, Sharing Movement” by Dr. Lee Jin Soon. She discussed how human beings who are egoistic to pursue profit can share and cooperate with giving examples and theories. For example, She illustrated “Wikipedia” case in detail to emphasize knowledge can be more wholesome when shared and invite many participants. Also, she mentioned “worse is better,” which means results can be better when people share the process with others rather than making something alone perfectly from the beginning.

Mr. Song Ho Jun gave the third speech with a topic “Sharing What Other People Say I am Crazy.” He talked about the reasons why he launched an individual satellite. The most memorable saying was that ‘Constant creation is about breaking the authority of creation through opening the content to public, then make another overcoming the former creation.’ He wants to create new things and share them with the world.
