So, there was an announcement on the BBC relating to the release of
their Creative Archives under some kind of OFLACC license:

I tend to be overly-suspicious of press-release language, but... the
press release refers to the "Creative Commons model" but doesn't say
they'll actually use a Creative Commons license. It seems like they're
hedging their bets.

Does anyone know if the BBC will use a real, honest-to-goodness
Creative Commons license? Or will they be creating Yet Another Content

What participation does Creative Commons have in their decision-making
