Creative Commons Launches

Creative Commons is having their big launch party tomorrow, December 16. They're unveiling their human-, computer-, and lawyer-readable licenses that make it easy to give away part of your copy rights to the public.

Well, their website launched a bit early. :)

You can check out their license chooser already. Why wait? Beat the rush.

It's pretty slick. After you answer three questions (the default answers lead you to select "public domain" as your license), it gives you a license which meets your requirements, then tells you how to use it. Optionally, you can enter some metadata about your project for the CC registry.

I've started an infoAnarchy story to track the Creative Commons launch.

This may well be my first scoop. This isn't on Slashdot or anything yet (I just submitted a story about it). If so, that's pretty cool.
