Lessig says 'never again' to copyright demons

In a slightly related development reported by Adam, doyen of the anti-copyright revolution, Lawrence Lessig has said he won't distribute his work any more unless under a decent sharing licence. Hear hear! I would like to do the same; and would encourage the various publishers to get with the programme.

Lessig chooses the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial licence as his line in the sand. I'll think about that. I have a paper that is now ready to consider the wider peer review - the Pareto-secure one. Maybe it's time to test these theories with real words and works.

FC itself is currently under the straight Attribution licence, which likewise is attributed to the Creative Commons effort.

Personally I've chosen to put all my works into the public domain. I figure that the U.S. congresscritters will continue to extend copyright terms indefinitely (along the lines of the Sonny Bono Copyright Terms Extension Act of 1998), so if I don't put my works into the public domain, no one will.
