Creative commons license for critical psychology article

Unbeknownst to most critical psychologists, there's a huge war being fought on the intellectual property front between those who seem to want corporate ownership of everything and those who want to grow the public domain. Creative commons is becoming an increasingly important weapon in this war - allowing authors to make their creative work freely available (while retaining some rights if they want to). So, to do our bit Desmond and I have slapped a creative commons license on our paper about Critical Psychology in South Africa. It's an "Attribution-NonCommercial Commons Deed", which means that anyone is free to "copy, distribute, display, and perform the work [and] to make derivative works" provided they mention that we were the original authors and don't use it for commercial purposes without first asking our permision.
