e IT spending.

The number of searches for PaaS on spiked from around 250 in December to over 700 in January, and have remained between 650-700 in February and March.

The spike in interest was likely caused by high profile acquisitions of PaaS vendors by Red Hat and in December. Red Hat acquired Makara (now OpenShift), and acquired Heroku.

The spike Gartner saw does not match Google's search trends. Google Trends shows a big spike in April of 2011, with a return to normal in May. Google's spike seems to correspond with VMware's announcement of Cloud Foundry.

Previously, Gartner revealed that SaaS is one of its top search terms.

YouTube tries to make it easy by using only one -- CC BY 3.0 -- that permits users to share and adapt content for commercial use provided that attribution is given to the original creator.


TechCrunch reported the new YouTube Creative Commons license options June 1. The option will be an addition to the normal standard YouTube license, which restricts users to fair use, fair dealing and getting permission to use content from the original copyright holder. The line of fair use and fair dealing can be blurry given the nature of the content being used, how much of it is used and whether or not the content is significantly changed to alter the meaning of the original work.

YouTube joins photo-sharing sites like Flickr that have Creative Commons options included with every upload that a user makes. The use of Creative Commons and fair use photos is one of the reasons that Flickr became one of the de facto places to share photos on the Web and helps the site sustain a vibrant community.

Creative Commons source attribution will be seen on the right under the video player in YouTube.

The use-case for Creative Commons on YouTube means that an extremely wide-variety of videos and clips will become available to users in creating derivative works or mash ups. As YouTube says in a blog post announcing the Creative Commons; "Maybe you were creating your own music video and needed an aerial video of Los Angeles at night to spice it up. Unless you had a helicopter, a pretty powerful camera and some fierce editing skills, this would have been a big challenge."
