Stumbled across this announcement and thought it might be somewhat connected to concerns involving cc licenses and protecting abuse?

I love the EFF I really do. but they have Z big fisk to fry. I have had some things lifted from here and used for what I consider Immoral Porpoises ..but wha? I am going to “go after ” them? baa..I ‘ve also had a lot of music ripped off from records I was on..somebody in Latvia pumpin out the hits of 1979 for $.50. I’ll be going after them too, yep, real soon.

Small potatoes. move along.

In 2002 I was at a Future of Music coalition meeting in DC , where I sat next next to a lawyer from the EFF..brilliant guy, he had just roasted a panel of music execs about the biz..almost made me want to get a law degree just so i could work with those people.

Well, there have been already a few court trial proving the liability of creative commons. The last one I remember has been in belgium: http://www.technollama.co.u...

So if you find somebody abusing your work, there are pretty good chances that you might win your case to - even without explicit help of the EFF. :)
