  • can do this right at creativecommons.org via our license chooser step 1 is to choose the conditions that you want to attach to the work all cc licenses require attribution to the original author of the work after that users can decide which conditions they want to apply
  • step 2 is to simply receive the license there are 6 CC licenses that reflect a spectrum of rights for the photos I share on Flickr, I use the Attribution only license, which means that anyone can download, copy, distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon them, even commercially, as long as they give me credit
  • of course the 3 layer approach of CC licenses and CC0 Public Domain Dedication helps communicate rights humans can understand a simple deed with primary rights and responsibilities described with those pervasive icons you see lawyers we have a legally enforceable legal code machine readable metadata that can be understood by search engines so you can filter for content based on the CC licenses there are six CC licenses that offer a spectrum of rights the most recognized and widely used license for Open Access is CC BY allows for unconditional reuse of the licensed material except for requirement that author is credited public domain tools - CC0 public domain dedication is a waiver of copyright and related rights thus placing the content into the public domain
  • within the jurisdiction, public and legal lead volunteers help to make the licenses work in their individual countries’ legal system we have 70 active affiliate teams with several more in process
  • Wikipedia, which about 2 years ago merged all their content into using CC attribution share-alike license
  • Photo websites like Flickr, with over 175 million CC-licensed photos
