Creative Commons license

Paris says Happy New YearI’ve been writing this blog here since 2004 and since then its been having a default copyright stance – i.e. I own it. I’ve been supporting the use of Creative Commons licensing on many of my works since 2004 (probably earlier, but with 2004 I am firm with the training materials).

Today I made sure that this blog, is also licensed under the Creative Commons. I’ve always liked the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license which is what is applied here. Its worth noting that my other body of work, photographs on Flickr have always been licensed under Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs.

Why something different for photos? I’d rather you use it as a whole instead of a mashup and if you were mashing it up, ask me for it. For text, if you want to build on top of my research/writings/works, feel free to, but just share it alike.

As always, contact me if you want it in something other than a share-alike/no-derivative license.

Surprised it took me so long to make sure this body of work is licensed under the Creative Commons!
