My second novel Eastern Standard Tribe has been published in German by Heyne, under the title Upload. As with the German edition of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom (published as Download), they've released the German text under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike. Given that Heyne's a division of the mega-publisher Bertelsmann, this is pretty cool news -- especially considering that the CC release was their idea!
I did a recent interview about CC licensing and science fiction with the German net-show WatchBerlin, too.
Update: There's also an interview with me from the German netcase NetzPolitik: Link

As in Down and Out, Doctorow shows here that he’s got the modern world, in all its Googled, Friendstered and PDA-d glory, completely sussed.
