Creative Commons

The non-profit organisation 'Creative Commons' is devoted to expanding the range of creative work (such as photographs, designs etc) available for others to build upon and share, and their innovative licenses offer an important alternative to traditional copyright. Rather than the usual '(c) All Rights Reserved' approach that limits the use that can be made of works, Creative Commons provides a '(cc) Some Rights Reserved' license. Creative individuals can use the Creative Commons website to automatically generate licenses that fit their exact needs.

See http://mirrors.creativecommons.org for a short Flash animation describing Creative Commons.
