I updated the Creative Commons license governing the use of this blog from the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 license to the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 license. I feel sort of guilty about using such a restrictive license, but I figure anyone who wants to use the contents of one of my entries in a commercial enterprise can jump through the relatively low hoop of getting my permission first.

While my homebrew editing of the footer.php template to include the license RDF worked fine, using Nathan Yergler's Creative Commons WordPress plugin (now with Ajax!) was a better solution. While I still had to edit footer.php, the excellent functions that the plugin exposes make this easy as pie.

Still, I am slightly annoyed that I had to go download a plugin to get Creative Commons licensing. Movable Type has had integrated support for Creative Commons licenses since February 2003. It would be nice if WordPress did the same.
