That seems a very disappointing rte of takeup - 2 years on and just a
handful -  ah well - pessimism of the intellect .. optimism of the will

Those involved in CC-NZ and with an interest in the heritage sector 
might be interested in a recently released report from the Eduserv 

Snapshot study on the use of open content licences in the UK cultural 
heritage sector

Of ~100 organisations responding to a web-based survey, most had digital

content online (usually images and text). 59 respondents were aware of 
Creative Archive or Creative Commons, but only 10 were using a CA or CC 
licence for some of their content. Another 12 have plans to use a CA or 
CC licence in the future, and 29 respondents were assessing (informally 
or formally) the impact of making content available using open content 
licenses so hopefully that means the ball is rolling, if a little more 
slowly than many would like...

CC-UK licenses were launched 2 years ago, so this level of awareness and

usage might be an interesting benchmark as we move forwards.
