Intellectual Baggage — The Good Kind

Glenn Otis Brown, December 30th, 2002

For some particularly excellent commentary about Creative Commons licenses, check out Denise M. Howell’s Bag and Baggage, one of the snappiest law-and-tech blogs out there. Denise chronicles her own experience applying one of our licenses to her blog and addresses readers’ questions about the licenses, among other things.

As our chairman has pointed out in his own blog, it’s just this sort of community participation and reporting that the Creative Commons model will rely on. So thanks to Bag and Baggage and the many others out there revving up the discussion.
