Japanese Government Give Up Original Copyright License, To Support Creative Commons

According to IT Media [J], Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs(ACA, Bunka-chou) reportedly expressed at a symposium that they had given up their original public copyright license CLIP, which they researched from 2007 to 2010, and changed to support existing licenses, especially Creative Commons Licenses(CC).
Although that some criticizes ACA spent tax for such a project easily could be expected to fail spreading, basically the net users seemed to welcome the decision. It would have been a nightmare if many contents created in Japan licensed under domestic-only original license, though CC is (of course) not perfect solution for any creatives.
