Creative Commons has released the new versions of their licenses, now available for adoption. They write, "The 4.0 licenses — more than two years in the making — are the most global, legally robust licenses produced by CC to date." When I choose the non-commercial license I have always used, it throws up a big 'This is not a Free Culture License' warning. Which is absurd, because the whole point of using the non-commercial license is to ensure that the work remains free. I don't know why Creative Commons persists in lobbying against its own licenses, but there it is, and nothing I say will change that, I guess.
