That command will allow that user to create any number of views.  It does stay in effect until you issue a REVOKE, so it would be in effect one month later, one year later, etc..

Also, that user will be able to DROP any view he/she created, but not a view created by another id.

The "GRANT CREATE VIEW TO user_name" just gives that one specific permission.  You can go into Query Analyzer and issue that command, and that user can then create views (and alter/delete any views he/she created, but no other users' views).

Db_datawriter, etc., are roles that essentially grant a lot of permissions.  I don't think that will help you here, because the only role (other than db_owner) that includes CREATE VIEW is db_ddladmin, and that gives a lot of other rights as well (such as ALTER TABLE, CREATE INDEX, CREATE TABLE, etc.).
