Abstract
At Wikimania last year, Benjamin Mako Hill and Erik Möller unveiled the Definition of Free Culture Works. The project, with the goal of producing a definition of free culture and content and a social movement to achieve it, has met with success and controversy over the last year. Of particular relevance, it has been adopted by the Wikimedia Foundation as the standard for essential freedom in all Wikimedia works. This talk will make the case for the a definition and discuss the definition itself in addition to focusing on experiences and progress over the last year.
