Ensuring you get credit where credit is due with Creative Commons
So one day I was bored, and decided to some self googling. After writing my previous post on Git on Gentoo, I decided poking searching for ‘nichoj git’.
Being a wiki, I was just able to just include the link. I got to thinking, and realized I didn’t really have anyway to safeguard against this kind of thing.
I was only vaguely aware of the Creative Commons, so I figured it was past time to read up on it.
All my needs really are:
- I want to be attributed if you use my stuff
- I don’t want you making money off my stuff without my permission
The Creative Commons website actually has some tools for figuring out what license you should use.
According to this, I should be using:
You can get a snippet to include the license on the page so people can know what is what. I opted to use a slightly altered version in my footer, to better fit in with the style of my site.
And with that, my content is licensed.
