[cc-community] CCplus Standard License Agreement?

Thanks for all the feedback so far.

We'll put on the roadmap for RegisteredCommons not just one, but multiple 
options for CC+. We have the restriction of the current CC metadata specs, 
which supports only one rel="cc:morePermissions" URL per work item. Our 
solution may be that this URL points to the registered work at RC and we 
resolve multiple CC+ options in a table with one or more targets, also 
allowing pointers for CC+ to other rights clearing houses. We may not be able 
to check dependencies and conflicts arising from double licensing, as there 
are probably too many combinations possible.

Still, we are looking for a fair and easy to understand general purpose 
commercial license contract. Unfortunately, http://ownterms.org has not yet 
got one.

Please be patient, as we are working with a highly secured service and need to 
run several unit tests before we deploy new features at RegisteredCommons.org 
We will take a two step approach and are starting with a simple CCplus form 
for each work item.

: Shouldn't be restricted to BY-SA, surely? CC-BY or CC0 should also be
: options.
