Licensing the Uncreative Uncommons

Uncreative Uncommons LogoMy good buddies over at the blog have invented a license that just makes sense. Dubbing it the Uncreative Uncommons Humor-LinkBack-Don’tRepeat license, they’ve single-licensedly made it safe to publish humorous content on the web without the fear that someone else might get away with retelling one of their jokes who actually doesn’t get it.

Makes sense to me. Full disclosure: I designed the logo and icons, borrowing massive inspiration from the original commons of the creatives.

  2. I think copyrighting the web is a farce in general. Shouting “Someone stole my code!” is common and usually unenforceable, don’t you think?
