Creative Commons recently launched a relationship with BzzAgent. The blogs were not amused. See Corante, Corante_II , Corante III, Just a Gwai Lo. BzzAgents has now responded poorly, calling Corante “liars.” As I’m partial to Corante, I’d be willing to ask CC to pull the relationship on the basis of that bad judgment alone. But I’d be really keen for some feedback.
Here are the facts to keep in mind:
(1) This “partnership” (like all our partnerships) is pro bono: CC doesn’t get or give money in these commercial contexts.
(2) The aim of the partnership is to extend our work offline. The vast majority of BzzAgent action occurs offline.
Thanks for the help.
