Anyone who has used a [Creative Commons](http://creativecommons.org/) license and likes the flexibility of use it allows owners of a copyright to offer to users should be interested in understanding the terms of the cc licenses better. Creative Commons is [conducting a study](http://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/11298) to shine the light on one such term – “noncommercial”. The hope is to use what’s learned from the survey responses to explain how use of the term might benefit or harm artist’s interests and even improve the licenses that incorporate the term. The Creative Commons team’s questionnaire has to be completed by this Sunday (December 14). If you are an artist or an author, please take some time to answer the questionnaire and help Creative Commons make their licenses even more useful.
