The University of Florida. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Bernie Leadon and Don Felder of the Eagles. Less Than Jake. Gainesville, Fla., is a town where new research and new music are churned out by talented minds. With so much intellectual property flying about, shouldn't everyone be thinking about how to protect and share their works?

Creative Commons licenses are a great way to do both.

As an alternative to the full "all rights reserved" copyright, Creative Commons offers a number of different licenses to meet the needs of artists, authors and educators. These licenses allow people to share and create derivative works while still giving credit to the creator.
