Creative Commons and "economic problem"?

I see Creative Commons as a form of 1960's protest theater, not as something that solves a real economic problem.

Hmm. Is Creative Commons trying to solve an "economic problem"? Or a "legal problem"? Umm, which "economic problem"? It seems to me that Creative Commons is about proving that the optimal setting for creativity is not infinite copyright. That's a social problem, not an economic one.
