Talking About GPL and Creative Commons for Bloggers

Thanks to Charles Stricklin and Aaron Brazell at the WordPress Podcast, I got to join them and answer questions and talk about intellectual property and licensing issues facing bloggers, with a special focus on Open Source licenses, the GPL (GNU General Public LIcense), and the Creative Commons licenses. We also talked a bit about GPL 3.0. I had a great time talking with Aaron and Charles and recommend their podcast, especially for WordPress users and those thinking about moving their blogs to WordPress. It’s episode #26 for the WordPress Podcast and the episode is here.
The idea of the podcast was to give a general overview of these issues and give people a general framework for considering the licensing issues. There are a lot of misconceptions and questions about these licenses. I hope that the podcast contributes to the general discussion and shows people the nuances and difficulties of some of these issues. I might have raised more new questions than I provided answers.
I’ve written about the Open Source licenses before (see my article here) and our discussion on Between Lawyers about whether to apply a Creative Commons license to our blog is still a great, practical lesson about the issues involved with the Creative Commons licenses.
I also noticed today that Dave Winer has started a discussion about the Creative Commons licenses. I recommend following that discussion as well if you are interested in these licenses, especially if you’ve already applied one to your work.
Link to podcast. Thanks again Charles and Aaron.
