The Creative Commons License

A topic that has interested me a lot has been the debate over how copyrights go against the interests of genuine users/connoiseurs who cannot afford to buy copyrighted content, and are deprived of its use. Numerous debates rage, from illegal downloads vs. RIAA, to DeCSS for the use of DVDs on linux. An interesting way out is the Creative Commons License. I found this interesting article,17863,608619-1,00.html

This book (available under the same license) talks about the same issues.

Have got to read it. I might not buy it, unless I see compelling value to do so. After all, that is what it is about :-)
