Spread of the Creative Commons

To celebrate these developments, my website is now available under the Creative Commons Attribution-Sharealike license 2.0. This can be identified in the "Some rights reserved" link in bottom of each page, and in machine-readable RDF metadata included in the pages.

At least the mocCC extension for the Mozilla Firefox browser identifies my site licensing correctly:

Apparently, not everybody is completely happy about the new licenses. Luis Villa writes:

Was cool to see that Creative Commons released new licenses, and I updated my stuff, but there is no longer an option to do non-attribution licenses, which makes them fairly non-free, DFSG-wise. That is unfortunate.

DFSG is the Debian Free Software Guidelines, a set of rules on what kind of software licenses can be allowed to the Debian GNU/Linux distribution.
