Submission + - Obama supports Creative Commons

chronus22 writes: "You might remember the draconian restrictions NBC placed on excerpts from the Presidential Primary Debates. Shockingly, it looks like a mainstream politician has both heard of and supports Creative Commons licensing. Barack Obama has written a letter to Democratic National Committee Chairman asking for the Democratic presidential debates to be made available under a Creative Commons license. Hopefully some of the other candidates follow his lead in freeing the information."
