Currently my weblog  is already under a creative commons license,
which is indicated with the 'default' sentence ("This work is licensed
under a Creative Commons Licens
<http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/1.0/>") (and a button).
But in my opinion it is not very clear about what content of the
website is licensed and what not. (by example when i copy a foto from
a friend to my webserver is it then licensed under the cc-license or not?)
The examples in the 'how to tag a html page'  give more information
about the exact content that is licensed, so I was thinking about
changing the sentence about my weblog, but my english isn't that good.
I whas thinking about the following sentence (based on the sickbuglog
"All content on this weblog (including text, photographs and any other
original works), unless otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative
But then I have to questions: when I use a picture from another server
(by example a logo) (without copying it to my server) does it then
also licensed under the cc according to the sentence, because it then
is content of my weblog? Or am I wrong? Could this be solved by adding
something like "... any other original works, and only from this
And what about content I do copy to my webserver which I didn't
create? Should I explicitly add: 'this picture is not licensed under
the CC' or 'this picture is (c) 2004 example.org'? Or is this not
necessary because my sentence says: "...original works.."?
(sorry for my bad english)
