Giving it Away

Modeled on the idea of open source software, Creative Commons is "founded on the notion that some people would prefer to share their creative works (and the power to copy, modify, and distribute their works) instead of exercising all of the restrictions of copyright law." This project was just recently setup by mostly intellectual property profs, like Larry Lessig and my old prof Jamie Boyle, to help provide the legal tools for musicians and artists to protect their artistic integrity while encouraging others to use their work in creative ways.
