Need Help Understanding Creative Commons Licenses?

Have you wanted to used some of those great and inspirational photos you have seen on several of the photo sharing sites such as Flickr, Photobucket, and Picasa, but didn't understand their licensing request?

I too, have that same dilemna.  I have to constantly reread the Creative Commons license descriptions in order to fully obliged the owner's request.  However, many of the descriptions were so complicated that I just contacted the owner and requested permission.

Well, I found an excellent QUICK fact sheet on Creative Commons licenses that spells it out simply for all the licensing novices like myself.  It is an easy-to-read 2 pager on an Australia website.
