Creative Commons has their site up. It looks like their applications won't be up until the fall but at least some of the mystery is revealed. For those of you who might have missed out Creative Commons is an organization dedicated to create a system for content producers and consumers to share works without the burden of strict copyright laws. Producers license works in an environment that encourages use. They hope to create a "commons" of information and art that can be openly shared for the benefit of all, something that many folks believe original copyright laws were intended to do in the first place. Protect, in the short term, the investment and creativity of the author, but guarantee the free use for future innovators in the long term. Not a bad goal.
