Seb Schmoller sends along this link to a new licensing scheme launched in Britain. Pretty clearly modeled on Creative Commons (though you won't find that on the site anywhere, or at least, I couldn't find it), the license offers rights to content created by the BBC, Open University, and other British public institutions. One thing I'm not thrilled about is the addition of a 'UK-only' provision to some licenses. And the 'no endorsement' condition is just odd: "not for campaigning, soapboxing or to defame others! So don't use it to promote political, charitable, or other campaigning purposes..." What, may I ask, constitutes 'soapboxing'? Would OLDaily qualify?
