Why Photographers Hate Creative Commons

I came across this post by Scott Baradell and some great follow-up comments and discussion about the problems of applying the Creative Commons (CC) license to photographs on the Web.

If you publish anything under Creative Commons, you really should read that post in its entirety to make sure you completely understand what rights and usage you are really allowing by your published license.

From my experience, very few people who self publishing material on the Web actually understand licensing or usage rights enough to make well fully informed decisions. We always have more to learn from informed discussion like Scott presents here. For example, do you really know what "Non-Commercial Use" means?
