Creative Commons License – Version 3

cc.gifThe Creative Commons folks have released version 3 of the copyright licensing package. A main feature of the new version is the disentanglement of the U.S.-specific license from the generic license useful in other jurisdictions. This aspect is not of critical importance here in Canada, perhaps, because like 30 or so other countries we have available a CC license set “ported” to our law. But version 6 addresses other matters that could be of interest to Canadians, such as moral rights, royalty collecting societies, exclusion of endorsement, etc. These are explained in some detail on the CC site. Presumably an updated Canadian version will deal with these issues as well.
