At the Web Standards Group meeting on Thursday, Tim Dale from the 
Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO), 
mentioned that revised government web guidelines would be released in 
December and aligned with the print guidelines. I asked Tim if this 
could include a revised Commonwealth Copyright notice incorporating a 
Creative Commons licence. He seemed to like the idea and said it 
would be looked at.

ps: Tim was the September speaker at the Canberra Society of Editors
