Finally, we’d like to acknowledge all who helped with the research, writing, content, design and other work on these Toolkits. The  Law Foundation of BC funded the project, Sharon J Mah, Jennifer Chew and Peter Eirikson got us going, ECUAD students in Copyright and Remix Culture kept us thinking, Vanessa Richmond and Arndt Klos editor were our editor and designer respectively. A truly collaborative effort shepherded by Martha Rans.

We deeply appreciate all of your contributions.
