Creative Commons To Launch New Licenses

Looks like Lawrence Lessig’s latest project is finally bearing fruit: on Dec. 16, the Creative Commons project will roll out its first batch of licenses for open content. Their hope is that this will enable open content communities to spring up, just as open software communities have. Lord, I hope they’re right; we need something other than the malign dictatorship of the MPAA/RIAA types if art and letters in America are not to be handicapped for generations.

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
