Free Culture Swarthmore (formerly known as the Swarthmore Coalition for the Digital Commons) is a student organization at Swarthmore College inspired by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Lawrence Lessig, Creative Commons and the Free Software Foundation. It is dedicated to promoting a bottom-up, participatory structure to society and culture, maintaining free and open standards for information, and resisting the recent radical expansion of intellectual property law (as exemplified by the Digital Millenium Copyright Act).

Since this LJ is no longer embedded on the front page of our website, we've set it so that anyone who joins the community can post, so please post about anything related to Free Culture Swarthmore! Incidentally, if you're serious about blogging, we'd like help with the official blog.

This community is supposed to be specific to FC Swarthmore, for general free culture discussion go to freeculture. Both communities are kind of dead at the moment, but hey, maybe you could change that!
