The Creative Commons License which I've added to this blog and my website does still allow you to rip, mix and learn from anything I write here but it does legally stop anyone from stealing my work and making a profit from it.

I've been reading Lawrence Lessig's book Free Culture. Lessig is one of the people who started Creative Commons.

From reading Lessig's book I've become much more aware that there is a tremendous struggle going on about the future of freedom in the age of the internet.

I was able to add this tagging to the resources upload to the VITTA subject assoction website when I figured out that most teachers considered that stuff that they uploaded was copyleft.
