At last, a solution to the eternal question "Where is your RSS feed?". Admittedly it creates the new question "Why is your RSS feed a big letdown from what I was led to believe by your RSS button?". But isn't that a much more interesting question? (From Sumana)

Just last night, Creative Commons effectively got rid of many of their least-used licenses by making the (almost always warranted) assumption on their license picker that you want attribution. Check out Mark Linksvayer's comment in my previous entry on the topic for hot new data that is going to make me have to redo my graph tonight.

I redid my graph to do a side-by-side comparison of Yahoo's and Google's allegations as to the relative popularity of Creative Commons licenses (and to get rid of a license which I somehow had in there twice).
The two engines give pretty similar pictures, except that Yahoo says public domain usage and the "Attribution" license are much less popular. Note the following:
- Every Attribution license is more popular than every non-Attribution license.
- The non-Attribution licenses are popular in approximately the same order as the Attribution licenses. The exception is the ingeniously perverse "Sharealike" license, which is sort of like a viral public domain.
- Yahoo and Google agree that the the top 4 licenses have about 84% market share, and that the top 5 have over 90% market share.
