Open Source vs. Copyright vs. Creative Commons vs. Open Access vs. Copyleft

Scale is based on the average worldwide traffic of "creative commons" in all years.
"open source" 22.6
copyright 15.2
"creative commons" 1.00
"open access"< 0.60
copyleft 0.20

A face-off among the internet vanguard today. Googlers go for "open source" followed by "copyright." The remaining three concepts are relatively unknown. In other words, the Open Access movement has its work cut out for it. Notice also that "copyright" is gaining traction in news while receding in searches. Due to the limitations of Google Trends, we cannot ascertain whether the Open Source movement follows the same trend.
