Re: <nettime> The Creative Commons is to Free Culture what Shareware is to Free Software


Thanks for this Dmytri, I really enjoyed it.

To me it highlights in particular how negative is Creative Commons' 
preference to conflate their licenses under the heading "licensed 
under a creative commons license," and refusing to take a stance as 
to the implications of license choice, as for example the FSF do.  
After all several CC licenses (BY, BY-SA, Zero) are all very useful 
to "free culture" people, but the issues of free culture, of seeking 
to break down the barriers between 'consumer' and 'producer,' are 
barely if at all mentioned.
