commons sense prevails

I had a big smile on my face when I read this. (via Glyn)

It's been unfortunate having to explain to others that while I support the Creative Commons organization, I do not support the phrase "creative commons license" when it lacks a clear qualifier. I've never thought favorably of either the DevNations or Sampling licenses. These options, while rarely employed, made declarations such as, "That song is under a creative commons license!" practically meaningless. As far as one can tell, with these two licenses gone this declaration now has significance. It now implies, at bare minimum, the freedom to make complete copies for others with whom you wish to share.
