Just a heads-up to everyone that Creative Commons has announced the release of their version 3.0 licenses for public use. While version 3.0 doesn't add anything significant in terms of license types beyond renaming the generic license as the US license, it does provide more useful icons that instantly tell users the extent of your copyright using the symbols that have more or less become publicly accepted in terms of meaning.

You can always get a Creative Commons license for any of your online or offline work, which comes especially handy for original works like blogs and your photos. Case in point - you may not have realized but Flickr allows users to apply Creative Commons licenses to their photos in order to not only protect the users' copyright but also encourage true sharing and limited usage under their "Some Rights Reserved" style licenses or by officially putting all your photos out their in the public domain.
