Creative Commons Has Failed Me and My Heart is Breaking

Charles Severance, International Journal of Psychoanalysis and Education, May 02, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Charles Severance is feeling failed by Creative Commons; I would answer that I saw this coming. Severance writes, "It is like my material is trapped in a content slum. You might think that search engines can tell the difference between me publishing my content and some scumbag replicating it in a content slum – but they can’t – when enough slums exist the original is lost in the noise." Via FunnyMonkey, which observes, "you can't license people into good behavior." Perhaps not, but I find the 'non-commercial" restriction does the job for me, even if Creative Commons has entered into a campaign against the NC condition.
