meant to link to this ages ago, when we saw it in Lawrence Lessig's post on the Creative Commons blog. Here's Lessig:
ccPublisher is a desktop application that makes it easy for people to put their creative work — marked with a CC license — on the Internet. Once you install the application, you can simply drag a file to ccPublisher. It will launch a procedure to first ask you to specify a CC license to apply to the content and then upload it to a server.
The server currently specified is the Internet Archive. Internet hero Brewster Kahle has committed to giving anyone who licenses content under a CC license free storage and free bandwidth, forever. So through the Archive you're given a permanent home for your content as well as a URL that you can give to others. In three simple steps, your work — however large, however difficult to carry — is available to everyone, forever.
And from the ccPublisher page:
CC Publisher is a tool that does two things: it will help you tag your audio and video files with information about your license and it allows you to upload Creative Commons-licensed audio and video works to the Internet Archive for free hosting. You also have the option of publishing the licensed and tagged audio works on your own site.
Good stuff for those among ye who create much heavier content than us word warriors, who can make do with our blogs.
Downloads are available for Windows XP/2000 and Mac OS X. Here's the ccPublisher link again.
