Submission + - Creative Commons license flaws found (bloosqr.com)

bloosqr writes: "Dan Heller claims to have found a series of problems with the creative commons license, particularly within the realm of photography in a series of three articles. In the first article he states there is a problem with people relicensing copyrighted work under the CC license and having subsequent users of that copyrighted work sued by the original owner. In the 2nd article he fleshes out these ideas and states that there is an increased risk of being sued if you use a CC license. Finally, in the 3rd article, he states that people can "game the CC license" for profit, by suing people who use your CC'd work which you have subsequently revoked from the CC license. This series of blogs has generated a fair amount of discussion on several photography forums, would it be possible for the slashdot community to clarify matters?"
