Hi John,

The Founder's Copyright is no longer an active project/process at CC.
Google has indexed some pages related to Founder's Copyright on the CC
which were apparently meant to be hidden... someone having put a space
in the URL ("/ projects/"), but that wasn't enough to hide them from
Google.  I'll handle removing those pages, but you'll need to find
another solution.  Sorry about the confusion.
