Creative Commons’ Response to COVID-19

  • The Open COVID Pledge calls on organizations around the world to make their patents and copyrights freely available in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pledge was originally developed by an international group of researchers, scientists, academics and lawyers seeking to accelerate the rapid development and deployment of diagnostics, vaccines, therapeutics, medical equipment, and software solutions in this urgent public health crisis. The project is now led and stewarded by Creative Commons. If you would like to make the pledge—or if you do not hold any intellectual property but still want to support the pledge—please contact
