Creative Commons: Proposed Protection Categories


Right now, Facebook members are campaigning for Facebook/Creative Commons integration.

I fully support this.

I think facebooks credibility would go through the roof.

I think creative commons would become the defacto standard of content protection.

I think everyone on the web would exercise freedom of expression with more confidence knowing they own their expression.

However, I think creative commons should change its conditions to make it more accessible.

I propose the following, based on the International System of Units

who: anonymous/originator/derivator

what: unit/series/collection

when: once/duration/forever

where: private/group/public

why: loss/balance/profit

how: as-is/constructive/destructive

how much: one/two/many

That should satisfy everyone.

I have forwarded this proposal to Creative Commons.
