An argument for the use of Creative Commons on the web

The science in this presentation was fascinating and the argument for the release of data to the web under creative commons  I agree with.  This is the overview on the TED website.

"How do you read a two-thousand-year-old manuscript that has been erased, cut up, written on and painted over? With a powerful particle accelerator, of course! Ancient books curator William Noel tells the fascinating story behind the Archimedes palimpsest, a Byzantine prayer book containing previously-unknown original writings from ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes and others.

William Noel is a curator who believes museums should make their collections free and available on the Internet."

 

I see that the British Library are following this same approach and have a very good page about access and reuse of the material.
