Thanks to a popular photo sharing platform flickr, and the

and a few other places.
Creative Commons provides free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, and educators easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. You can use CC to change your copyright terms from “All Rights Reserved” to “Some Rights Reserved.”
This could well be called the GPL equivalent for creative thoughts and material. .
Open Source is here to stay.
