Attributor Corporation, a provider of web-wide content monitoring and monetization platforms, announced a collaboration with Creative Commons to launch FairShare, a free service allowing bloggers and individual content creators to understand how their work is shared across the web. FairShare allows anyone creating text content to submit an RSS feed of their work and choose a Creative Commons license to determine how it can be shared. Users then receive license-specific results via RSS with detailed insights into how and where their work is reused. The FairShare service enters public beta supporting six Creative Commons licenses. Creative Commons is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 2001, that promotes the creative reuse of intellectual and artistic works, whether owned or in the public domain. The FairShare service will be integrated with the Creative Commons license selection process and available in each of the 12 languages that FairShare currently supports. FairShare leverages Attributor's proprietary tracking index of over 35 billion web pages.
