Indeed. Mea Culpa. That passage was utter bollocks. Excise it from your
minds, gentle readers. It should read:
"As with any RDF elements, an occurance of <cc:license> within any
element implies the copyright of the document contained with the
rdf:about attribute of that parent element, and not the document pointed
to by the <link> sub-element."
