While the research did find a number of orgs that were unaware of CC and Creative Archive, I actually think that it revealed quite an impact of this type of licensing in the sector. Copyright is esoteric even for lawyers, and it is a resource intensive area. Some of the orgs surveyed are very small, and so I don't think it is surprising the level of awareness. On the contrary, I think that while there is a definite group of orgs that are unware, that open content licensing is having a big impact. Of course one of the major obstacles to using the licences is the orphan works issue and making sure that good IP management practices are in place. Thanks for the mention!
