  12. 12. CC Licenses Build upon Traditional Copyright ! CC works within the existing system by allowing movement from “All Rights Reserved” to “Some Rights Reserved” ! CC improves copyright by giving creators a choice about which freedoms to grant and which rights to keep ! CC minimizes transaction costs by granting the public certain permissions beforehand
  13. 13. Basic License Building Blocks CC licenses are comprised of combinations of 4 basic conditions: Attribution Non-Commercial No Derivatives Share Alike
  14. 14. Attribution (BY) • Allows others to copy, distribute, display, and perform the copyrighted work — and derivative works based upon it — but only if they give credit in the manner specified. • All CC licenses require attribution • Some people require www linkbacks as part of the attribution clause.
  15. 15. Non-Commercial (NC) • Lets others copy, distribute, display, and perform the work for noncommercial purposes only. • The author retains the commercial rights. • Users may still request to use the work commercially, which may cost money.
  16. 16. No Derivatives (ND) • Allows others to copy, distribute, display, and perform only verbatim copies of the work, not derivative works based upon it. • For the purposes of CC licenses, syncing music in timed-relation with a moving image is a derivative work.
  17. 17. Share Alike (SA) • Allows others to distribute derivative works only under a license that is the same as, or compatible with, the license that governs the work. • This is the only license term that mandates the new work be placed into the commons.
  18. 18. CC licenses are expressed in three different ways: human-readable lawyer-readable legal machine-readable commons deed code metadata <a rel="license" href="http:// 3.0/us/"><img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0" src=" l/by/3.0/us/88x31.png" /></a><br / >This work is licensed under a <a rel="license" href="http:// 3.0/us/">Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States License</a>.
