The purpose of copyright is to provide an incentive for the creation of new works.
Copyright specifically protects expression.

Creative Commons is a suite of standardised copyright licences designed to provide
than the restrictive “All rights reserved” approach or a free-for-all
such as when the copyright term has expired as the work passes into the public domain.
The Creative Commons “Some rights reserved” approach is designed to provide
a number of options, varying in how restrictive they are, between these two positions.
Internationally all CC licences concern themselves with four ways of managing your content.
It requires that, for any reuse of the licensed content, the user acknowledges the original creator. This licence element is a default attribute of all Creative Commons licences.
If you choose non-commercial people who user the licensed content cannot derive commercial gain from the work.
This element requires that the content be reused exactly as it is only; you cannot change the work in any way.
It allows remixing and transformative works but only where derivative works are licensed on the same terms as the original content. To keep the licensing system user-friendly and accessible to non-lawyers the licensing process had to be easy.
CC also provides a way for us to automatically find digital works that are CC-licensed. Google supports this.
Flickr also supports CC licensing and searching.
Creative Commons has an interface for searching multiple sources.
