New Zealand Labour goes Creative Commons

The New Zealand Labour website recently launched a hot, new website, and in the footer they have this to say: “Content licensed with Creative Commons 3.0.” So, good on them!

But it clashes with this right before it: “Copyright © 2007 by the New Zealand Labour Party.”

Although it could be a nice ploy to get their content and message out there more by allowing people to copy their information directly with credit. However, it doesn’t actually state what licence they are using, there are many to choose from.

Good on them though for taking the initiative and attempting to do this; it really failed though.

    The copyright notice is not inaccurate, and it’s actuallly a good idea. Using free licenses doesn’t mean relinquishing all copyright, after all. But not stating a *specific* CC license is indeed a trap for young players. 🙂
