If you've uploaded a video to YouTube recently, you may have noticed a new option to license your video. In addition to the Standard YouTube license, you now have a choice to select Creative Commons CC BY license [attribution - reuse allowed].

Our question is, do you use it? Tell us why you do or don't.

It was the Creative Commons option, and the fact that they have reliable html5, that I returned to YouTube. I'd avoided it since switching to Linux due to Flash and the fact that I wasn't sure who owned my content once I'd uploaded. But being able to watch my videos without installing Flash, and being able to specify that the videos may be with a share-alike / attribution clause, made youtube my first and singular choice for videos online.

I do use it though I specify my videos to be CC BY NC in the video itself

You forgot to add the "Hell yeah!" choice. But I forgive you. :-D I'm sure they'll add more licence options in the future, but I'm happy since I only ever use the BY option.
