With the release of version 3.0, it’s time to check out Creative Commons if you don’t already know about this great organization. I would call CC the lubricant of the Creative Age. It makes the wheels go round 🙂
As the CC site says:
Creative Commons helps you publish your work online while letting others know exactly what they can and can’t do with your work. When you choose a licence, we provide you with tools and tutorials that let you add licence information to our own site, or to one of several free hosting services that have incorporated Creative Commons.
A CC licence is not just for indivdual websites and creations, but a great tool for educational institutions and non-profits as well as for-profits who understand the Internet economy.
