One thing I really like about the Creative Commons project is that they’re at least encouraging people to think consciously about the power of copyright and how it is applied. Whether a CC license is right for your works is less important than the fact that just presenting people with a number of copyright alternatives encourages them to consider how they want their work to be licensed, rather than just silently accepting the copyright terms that Congress has agreed to in order to help out Disney. Tim O’Reilly is putting his money where his mouth is by jumping on board the Founders’ Copyright project, and even better, releasing the content from O’Reilly’s out of print books under an attribution license.
