CC 4.0 licenses are out, perfect time to upgrade to CC0 http://gondwanaland.com/mlog/2013/11/25/upgrade-to-0/

Great points, Mike. My new strategy has been to shift folks one point towards CC0, every 6 - 12 months. Ideally I could make someone go from C > SA > BY > 0 in under a few years.

It is helped by the fact that nearly all of my clients really enjoy the spikes of attention the more open licenses afford. ^_^

Although there may be some valid criticism of the CC-BY-SA implementation of copyleft, it irks me to see permissive licenses described as "more open".

@clacke but my support for CC0 is equivocal. it isn't perfect! :)

Many good points in your post, and I have some thoughts about the future of CC (licenses) too. I will be too lazy not writing up a post to follow up yours.
