THE Creative Commons Licence

Being an ardent fan of open-source software, I think it is one of the revolutionary ideas.. giving away things for free. Put in other words, maintaing a single copy of a thing which is accessible to ANYONE. I believe as it is stated in the Wiki Page, that the sum of human knowledge must be available to ANYONE, anywhere , free of cost 🙂

A nice quote I read ,( I do not I know the Author and I could not Google it up) ..

“A lot can be achieved if it does not matter who takes the credit “

And I JUST LOVE this page .. and have a copy of it ..( Just in case they loose the page 😛 )
