FlashAnt finally under a Creative Commons License

I was lucky enough to attend a presentation by Paula Le Dieu, who is the Director of Creative Commons International, at FlashForward last week on the Creative Commons project. Needless to say, I was very impressed by the scope and importance of their undertaking. Paula was an excellent conduit, representing the reach, energy and enthusiasm that is, without doubt, inherent in the project. If nothing else, this has led to my getting off my (albeit skinny) butt and finally releasing the content on FlashAnt under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 England & Wales License.

What this means is that you can use the content on here for commercial or non-commercial purposes as long as you give me credit and you license your derived works under the same license. Also, if any legal action has to be initiated (due to a license breach, for example), it will be done so here in the UK and under the jurisdiction of the British courts (that's what the last bit means!)

I was talking about Creative Commons (CC) licenses with my friend, Pete-Barr Watson on our way back from FlashForward and he gave me the idea to actually allow commerical uses of the work combined with a ShareAlike license as a means of getting broader reach -- eg. in magazines, etc. -- of the content as a means of promoting CC.

I'm also working on a little CC-related surprise which I hope I can release today at some point.
