Creative Commons elevator pitch

Using a Creative Commons license to provide some protection of your rights to the intellectual capital that makes up the content of your blog is a sensible thing to do. I’ve done that on my blog (license at the bottom of the right-hand column).

The trouble is, understanding the different Creative Commons licenses and what rights they confer isn’t easy.

So Jason Fried has done a great job in his Signal vs Noise blog in stimulating some discussion to try and get a clear description of what Creative Commons is all about in 20 words or less. A good elevator pitch.
