Creative Commons CC

nothing is more powerful than shared knowledge

  • Creative Commons is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to making it easier for people to share and build upon the work of others, consistent with the rules of copyright.
  • We provide free licenses and other legal tools to mark creative work with the freedom the creator wants it to carry, so others can share, remix, use commercially, or any combination thereof … (about 1/2).

About 2/2: … Some Rights Reserved: Creative Commons defines the spectrum of possibilities between full copyright and the public domain. From all rights reserved to no rights reserved. Our licenses help you keep your copyright while allowing certain uses of your work — a “some rights reserved” copyright.

CC Licenses work alongside copyright:

  • Creative Commons licenses are not an alternative to copyright. They work alongside copyright, so you can modify your copyright terms to best suit your needs. We’ve collaborated with intellectual property experts all around the world to ensure that our licenses work globally.

Our other legal tools and resources:

  • For those creators wishing to opt out of the copyright altogether, Creative Commons helps them do so by providing tools that allow you to place your work as squarely as possible within the public domain — a “no rights reserved” alternative to copyright.

Your Support:

  • Creative Commons today is alive and thriving thanks to the generous and continued support of people like you. Spread the word about CC to your friends and family or donate and help build the commons.
