Fwd: [Foundation-l] Licensing tutorials

Teaching people what is and isn't a genuine free content licence is
one of Wikimedia's biggest headaches ... *anything* anyone has on the
subject, please forward it to Erik.

(note: Several people from Creative Commons read commons-l, which is
the list for Wikimedia Commons, the photo and media repository; people
who know lots about FSF free content licences might find it a suitable
place to keep an eye on as well. The CC people were enormously helpful
with concerns over the CC 3.0 licences, said concerns being the reason
for CC 3.01.)

All -

 could you send me some links - offlist is fine - to useful tutorials
 that you're aware of on free content licensing? I think there are some
 pages on Wikimedia Commons that might be useful, if perhaps a bit

 It would just be good to have some URLs to shoot to folks who have
 heard once of Creative Commons and open source - but really don't have
 a clue what any of it means, get confused about the
 commercial/non-commercial distinction, think they can still cut
 exclusive deals for some types of usage, etc. :-)
