After a long conversation with Dave Winer, we've come to an agreement
for an implementation of Creative Commons metadata and mod_cc, within
RSS 0.9x. Resolute rdf-haters with stuff to publicdomainatise can now go
<license url="URL OF DOCUMENT DESCRIBING LICENSE" />
which can be a sub-element of <channel> <item> or <image>. The URL
should point to a retrieveable URL, whether it be a page on your own
site declaring your intent, a commonly known license, or one of the
forthcoming Creative Commons "Commons Deeds". The license refers to the
object pointed to by the <link> element it is closest to.
<license url="http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html" />
<license url="http://www.userland.com/termsandconditions.html" />
<license url="http://www.benhammersley.com/dontnickmystuff.html" />
the last two of which I made up entirely.
