"Creative commons, an effort to get artists and scholars to give up some
control of their works so that they can be more freely distributed, is
struggling to gain a foothold in academe."

"Academic programs that use Creative Commons licenses include the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's OpenCourseWare and Rice University's Connexions, online repositories of college-course material, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School, the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, and the Berklee College of Music's Berklee Shares, which offers free music lessons. The Public Library of Science, which publishes free journals online, also licenses material under Creative Commons."
