Creative Commons 3.0 Available

The Creative Commons licenses are available as version 3 since recently. If you publish content through Flickr, a blog, a homepage or the like and you add a Creative Commons license, you give others a chance to republish or remix your content (which can increase the distribution of your content, and in general, makes the life of publishers like yourself easier). When you link to your license, also include the rel="license” attribute, e.g.

<a href="" rel="license">Some rights reserved</a>

This will make sure your content can be found with e.g. Google’s advanced/ usage rights search option. (Including the RDF metadata snippet is not necessary to be found with Google, as the Creative Commons support just confirmed with me.)
