Obama transition website uses Creative Commons licensing

Consistent with the values of any “open government,” and with his strong leadership on “free debates” from the very start, the Obama team has modified the copyright notice on change.gov to embrace the freest CC license.

Obama has a Mac laptop, lives on his Blackberry and by this gesture has signaled strong support for Creative Commons licensing. After eight years of reactionary tech illiterates in power, it’ll be so nice to have a president for whom the net is an everyday part of life.
