Perhaps some don’t get that excited over a license upgrade, but I’m happy to announce that I’ve upgraded the license of my blog to version 4.0 of the Creative Commons license! If you’d like to generate a license for you work, you can go to the CC license generator and get one.
Creative Commons licenses (copied from About Creative Commons):
provide a simple, standardized way to give the public permission to share and use your creative work — on conditions of your choice. CC licenses let you easily change your copyright terms from the default of “all rights reserved” to “some rights reserved.”
Creative Commons licenses are not an alternative to copyright. They work alongside copyright and enable you to modify your copyright terms to best suit your needs.
If you write, draw, paint, or create and want to share your work, consider a Creative Commons license and support free culture.
