what is the copyright situation for the cc licenses - as you seem well
is there a trademark registration?
for which countries?

Anyway, I have no problem in call it MY Creative Commons

unless of course, cc intend to prohibit the usage of the trademark
world wide - which would
be another intersting story
Nobody can trademark the name 'commons' afaik - caust it is a term to
indicate the public domain

I am pretty confident that we'll meet in court anyway one day or another
what's your jurisdiction btw?
