Why Creative Commons uses CC0

My last blog post for Creative Commons just went up today: why CC uses its own CC0 legal tool to release the text of its licenses into the public domain. You can read it there.

(It’s something I’m happy to have worked on while there, as there was some discussion about other possibilities such as CC BY; I think CC0 was the right choice. And also I can’t help but chuckle at being a zombie lawyer, blogging from beyond the staff listing.)
