So why not offer clients the use of “non-traditional” web application that helps people dedicate their creative works to the public domain or retain their copyright while licensing them as free for certain uses, on certain conditions.
Creative Commons license are based on copyright. The kinds of works that are protected by copyright law are books, websites, blogs, photographs, films, videos, songs and other audio & visual recordings.
Creative Commons licenses give you the ability to dictate how others may exercise your copyright rights—such as the right of others to copy your work, make derivative works or adaptations of your work, to distribute.
Creative Commons licenses attach to the work and authorize anyone who comes in contact with the work to use it consistent with the license.
Creative Commons licenses are expressed in different formats and you don’t need to sign anything to get a Creative Commons license.
Creative Commons licenses are all non-exclusive. This means that you can permit the general public to use your work under a Creative Commons license and then enter into a separate and different non-exclusive license with someone else, in exchange for money.
The Commons Deed (human readable code). A summary of the key terms of the actual license. Advises others what they can and cannot do with the work. The deed has no legal value and does not appear in the license.
Legal Code (lawyer readable code). This is the actual license and can be enforced in a court of law.
Metadata (machine readable code). This describes the license elements that apply the content to be able to be discovered through search engines.
Before Creative Commons, the options for openly licensing content were limited and difficult to use. And in most cases, if you were to reprint another organization's article without paying for it or asking for permission, you'd likely get slapped with a lawsuit alleging copyright theft.
Creative Commons marks an incredible shift from those days one that especially benefits profit and nonprofit organizations alike.
