You’ll learn a little about what Creative Commons is, how to find the right type of CC license for your content, and some reasons why you should do this. It’s all pretty easy, and helps make the web a friendlier place.

Writers: I’m really interested in knowing the extent of Creative Commons remixing of text. Have you ever “remixed” or repurposed Creative Commons content? What did you do, and what was the goal? Any interesting responses, from the original creator or your readers?

Other questions: When do you insist on reserving all your copyright rights? When is it right to share your words, as well as your ideas?

Go read my piece, and if you have answers to the questions above, respond in the Comments below.
