CCUK – not quite coming to a computer near you

I was lured to University College London today for what was proclaimed as the 'launch [of] the UK version of the Creative Commons licences'. (For the uninitiated, the Creative Commons project enables authors to free up some of their creative endeavours for people to take and use – from this site, for example, you may 'copy, distribute, display, and perform the work'; 'make derivative works'; and 'make commercial use of the work' with a view to allow people to create new and often unexpected works - to see the license visit: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/1.0/)

I was also lured to hear the ever excellent Lawrence Lessig. Lessig was there but the UK licenses don't launch until 1 November, unfortunately. So, though I sat through the copyright guru eagerly awaiting the command to 'return to your websites and prepare for UK content' all we got was an update on the project.

Most interesting, but I did feel a touch misled. Roll on 1 November is all I can say.
