You'd think that Creative Commons is a pretty simple concept to grasp. However, John Dvorak's recent column about the Creative Commons licenses shows that it is indeed possible to completely miss the point. (And get a column out of it, to boot.)
I'd been meaning to blog about Dvorak's column, to clear up any misconceptions he might be foisting on his readers, but Joe Gratz has beaten me to the punch. Gratz Fisks Dvorak pretty thoroughly, so rather than being redundant I'll just point you to Gratz's post for your reading pleasure.
