John Ellis had planned to talk about Creative Commons, but we ran out of time. He has generously gave us some information:
Creative Commons is a non-profit group that encourages the creators of works to allow others to share and build upon their creative works. Creative Commons licensing includes several options for the creators. They can require that users attribute their work when used, attribute and share alike, attribute but do not create derivative works, attribute but do not use for commercial purposes, attribute but do not use for commercial purposes and share alike, attribute but do not use for commercial purposes and do not create derivative works. Wikipedia uses Creative Commons licensing.
