I'm about to release my site to the public. Everything was coded from scratch by myself, which is why I'm inclined to make it all open source and uploading it to google code. It's a weblog system written using PHP and SQLite.
I'm considering using a Creative Commons attribution & non-commercial license.
This post is mainly directed towards Kroc, but I'm interested in hearing any and all opinions. Kroc, I noticed you just use cc-by, thus allowing commercial use of your work. I would feel uncomfortable doing this with my own site. I'm not looking to make money off of it, but the idea of someone taking my work and making money when I gave it away for free is not appealing to me. The thought that someone could take my site's design and rip someone off by selling it to them doesn't sound good to me.
Like I said I'm not here to make money off of my website, so I have no problem making it open source and opening it up for anyone to use the design and backend freely as long as they credit me. (When you think about it, people will probably steal designs regardless of whether you reserve all your rights to copyright or not. You might as well just give it to those people and tell them they're free to use it. This way at least they'll give you credit for it.)
This is just my initial reaction to this issue. I would be happy to have my mind changed about the subject.
