It's that time fo the year again - and no, I don't mean the christmas shwag creeping into department stores prematurely. Creative Commons is doing it's annual fundraiser, and I would urge you to consider contributing.

Support The Commons
I myself have profited a lot from Creative Commons so far. Not only do I have two blogs that are CC licensed, but I also published my book as a free download under a CC license the day the German licenses came out two years ago.

The book has since been downloaded some ten thousand times. I really don't know the exact number because we did a bad job of tracking downloads in the beginning. I do know however that negotiating a free PDF download with my publisher without the Creative Commons licensing framework would have been much harder, if not impossible.
