YouTube Adds Creative Commons License
It's nothing particularly major, but YouTube added the ability to set newly uploaded videos as a Creative Commons based license. The means that it's possible to use bits or whole videos as part of another project without repercussions... the problem is that the feature is locked to the Cloud based online editor.
CC videos will have a separate library for which you can peruse and then use. So it's not as if you can chop up the near 400million view monster and splice it with some dancing cats and get away with it - but it can be done with a Sarah Palin press conference... Likewise, can't exactly upload content you don't own as CC content.
I don't know which specific CC license they are using, (there are several), but fair game to them, at least there is a choice in licensing.

This is a very good thing, and to be honest I'm surprised it took them this long. After all, look at the kind of traffic this site gets, and the number of videos being uploaded per minute. The numbers are boggling.
