WhiteHouse.gov Uses Creative Commons Copyright License

Change.gov is now referring visitors to http://www.whitehouse.gov/. Behind the notice page, however, the website remains active, which is good to know given the amount of information deposited there.

The copyright policy is a bit simpler now, but still incorporates Creative Commons for third-party content:
