Failure of Creative Commons Licenses

Tony Karrer

They are there to help set up the licenses. But that said, it also shows a failure of the current licenses. As I pointed out in my previous post, Creative Commons themselves conducted a study to understand commonly held interpretation of the understanding of the meaning of these licenses.

Our customers use Crystal Reports in connection with our software. I'm actually not that familiar with the issues here and don't know how software companies generally handle this.

U.S. Export Controls: Do You Need an Export License?


By definition, an export is any item that is shipped from the United States to any foreign location, whether it is sent to an individual or an organization. By “shipped”, it is understood that said item may be sent by regular mail, air mail, or by ship, but also hand-carried on a plane by you or someone else.

After you've created your font you can choose your own licensing for the font. This means you could protect the font with an All Rights Reserved copyright (preventing downloads), or you could share the font (making it available for download) under a variety of Creative Commons licenses.  Make sure you check the license for each font before you download and use it; I was able to find a decent selection of fonts available for commercial (and non-commercial) use.  Be sure to check the Shared section for licensing information.
