Doctorow releases Self under Creative Commons License
by Marshal Gegith
In a widely anticipated move, blogger and sf writer Cory Doctorow today announced that he is making himself available for download under a Creative Commons license. The download, which will be available from midnight on Tuesday, will be for a wide range of non-DRM platforms.
In a webchat announcing the plans, Doctorow downplayed suggestions that the download would reduce demand for people wanting to meet him in person: "My bet is that the Ubiquitous Cory will be the best promotional tool I've ever had."
The downloaded Doctorow also includes a laptop, MP3 player, and a range of eight Copyfight/EFF T-shirts.
