From the Website:
Critical Commons is part of the technical and conceptual architecture for numerous electronic publishing efforts that directly engage media as objects of analysis, curation and critique. At the heart of Critical Commons is an online platform for viewing, tagging, sharing, annotating curating and spreading media. Our goal is to build open, informed communities around media-based research, teaching, learning and creativity. And although we are huge fans of their work, please note that Critical Commons is not affiliated in any way with Creative Commons.
