Noticed in the comments on this post about the BBC’s (very tentative) open-source initiative: Auntie Beeb is actually releasing its album reviews via a Creative Commons license. In other words, they’re willingly giving other web sites (or publications) the right to reprint their reviews, free of charge.

The BBC had years ago announced its intentions to use CC on some archival material, but this is for brand new content the BBC presumably just paid for, either via a staffer’s salary or a freelancer. Has there been another big media titan who has embraced Creative Commons that much?
