Features, Office Users of Microsoft Office can now choose one of the Creative Commons licenses for work created in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Microsoft and Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works, partnered with 3sharp LLC to develop and test this new copyright licensing tool, known as the Creative Commons add-in for Microsoft Office.

What the hell? This has *NOTHING* to do with licensing. From the article one could be lead to believe that this was some groundbreaking move by MS to allow a different licensing for *your* work while it's actually just an, admittedly nifty, plugin that makes it easy to chose from different license presets.
MS has no say in how you license the works you create with their products. Is this some kind of lame attempt at starting a flamewar?
