Obama votes for Creative Commons

with one comment

cc_logo2Anyone interested in intellectual property should check out Professor Lawrence Lessig’s blog to see how several postings developed the idea of President-elect Obama’s official transition website changing its copyright from traditional to the least restrictive Creative Commons license. This will make it easier for people to share, discuss and comment on the material there without inadvertently running afoul of copyright law. It also indicates a possible and welcome change in the government’s attitude toward digital media.
