See this article by Karlin Lillington of the Irish Times :

26 June 2009


[P]erhaps the most obvious sign of just how mainstream Creative Commons has become (after emerging from its libertarian, academic roots at Stanford University) is that the Obama administration uses it for licensing content on the official White House website, It was also used for, the Obama-Biden transition team website.

Feedback in these final stages is again, invited from the Irish public. More information is available at, where anyone can subscribe to the discussion list, view the current copy of the draft, and read what's described as an "English explanation of substantive legal changes" between drafts.
