Creative Commons is an effort to facilitate the reuse of creative work, specifically by providing more flexible licenses that people can attach to their writings. Instead of having a blanket "Copyright (c) All Rights Reserved" message, which essentially means: "Don't do nothing with my stuff, unless I specifically tell you to", the authors can choose a license that specifies in advance what they're willing to share, and how. Many people will happily let their stuff be shared, if they're just acknowledged for it, or if it is for non-commercial use, or some other simple requirement. If these kinds of uniform licenses are used, it becomes MUCH easier to create shared resources on the Internet, in that you can do it automatically, rather than having to negotiate with every single copyright holder.

I love the idea, I'm ready when they are.

I herewith authorize permission for anyone to reproduce the poetry and images I am publishing on the New Civilization website
for non-commercial purposes and in accordance with the spirit that the words and images naturally associate with.

Great. I'm thinking, maybe I should build that into one's profile here. That one can choose what license applies to stuff one posts here.

There are a lot of wonderful things going on in this labyrinthine website,
and there are many things that could be shared in various ways through this magical global electronic network. The New Age concept betokens the necessity and inevitability of the sharing of consciousness without the hinderances to growth created by the association of the concept of property rights to Ideas.
I mean like are we all in this together or are we not,
and how many dollars exactly am i supposed to think my Idea is Worth?
It's getting time for some of the old concepts to start withering away.
Just the way I look at it.
