Two of the original top three items on my "Drupal Wishlist" have already been tackled by the Drupal community. I can't believe it. Wow!
This time the big news is the release of a Creative Commons module for Drupal. Sure, there may be a few small issues to iron out but I love it! From the module page...
The Creative Commons module allows users to select and assign a Creative Commons license to a node and any attached content. Additionally, the site admin can select a license to assign to the entire site.
This module uses the Creative Commons api (api.creativecommons.org) and can update when new Creative Commons licenses are available (for example, the more recent sampling licenses). Admins can restrict the licenses available to users, as well as require specific metadata be included.
Thanks go out to digibike and whoever else may have helped with this.
