Creative Commons License.

I just recently got a Creative Commons License after watching RIP: the Remix Manifesto.
The license I have placed on my page states that anyone is free to:
  • to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work
  • to Remix — to adapt the work
HOWEVER:
  • Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the work).
  • Noncommercial — You may not use this work for commercial purposes.

 

I chose this option for quite basic reasons. After reading about the Chinese student that became a worldwide celebrity just because he had a cute chubby face I became a little weary of what people are allowed to actually do with the content I post online. Also after watching the documentary RIP: the Remix Manifesto I saw the real benefits of joining the Creative Commons network and contributing to the remix movement.

I highly doubt anyone will want to remix or use any of the material I have posted here, however if they did, I would like to know about it and I would also like my opinions and analysis to be credited to the many hours of work I have put in to this blog.
