I’ve added a Creative Commons License to the Burningbird Weblog. You’ll see it at the end of my blogroll.
The generated license code embedded in the page validates as XHTML 1.0 strict as long as you remove the ‘border=”0″‘ attribute from the image.
I’ve licensed myself as Attribution-NoDerivs-NonCommercial 1.0:
Attribution: The licensor permits others to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work. In return, licensees must give the original author credit.
No Derivative Works: The licensor permits others to copy, distribute, display and perform only unaltered copies of the work — not derivative works based on it.
Noncommercial: The licensor permits others to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work. In return, licensees may not use the work for commercial purposes — unless they get the licensor’s permission.
Easy as 1-2-3 — fill in a couple of forms asking simple questions, mail the HTML to yourself, make the modification I recommended, paste it into your weblog template, and baby, you’ve just joined the Commons.
Update: I incorporated the CCL RDF into my PostCon RDF, as demonstrated in the example PostCon RDF file. This is a good fit because the PostCon RDF file is a description about the web resource, and this includes licensing information as well as format, validation, history, and so on. I’ll also add ability to add CCL to the PostCon generation tool, but not using the Common’s form — people will have to know the specific license type ahead of time. At least for the first release of PostCon.
