creative commons

Just trying something out.  Someone pointed out the other day that my stuff is available on-line for 'anyone to nick'.  He has a point.  I had an issue with a singer who, after I sent him a link to photos I took of him in concert, posted some on his MySpace, but resolutely did not credit me (I mailed him about it twice).  This was more a matter of pride than anything else, given that, as far as I know, he didn't use them for anything commercial.

Anyways, just figured I'd try adding a creative commons code to my stuff.  I want people to share anything of mine they find interesting enough to show to others.  But I'd really rather people weren't passing it off as their own.


Hurah for the Creative Commons people!  Now the rest is down to common courtesy, I guess.
