    But this is important to know when sth is created, say a photo or document or a music track it is automatically protected by copyright. Copyright enables people to say who can share and re-use their creations. You must always obtain someone's permission before sharing or re-suing their work even when it is posted online.

    But what when creator wants everyone to use their work without asking grounded permission over and over. This is where Creative Commons can help. Creative Commons provides licensing tools that are free to use. You can apply license to your work which refines your copyright and streamlines how you give permission.

    Zack downloads photo called CC Kiwi that he wants to use in a science project. He can do that without asking Kiri, the photographer, first because she has already given permission with the Creative Commons license. Kiri's licence is legally robust but easily for Zack to understand. ĘShe has told the world, including Zack, that they can use CC Kiwi as long as they acknowledge her as original photographer.

    There are more rules Kiri could have included. Creative Commons licences are made up from licence elements. You can think of them as rules. And each has its own special symbol. This is attribution. It means that Zack must acknowledge Kiri when he publishes his science project containing her photo.

    This is non commercial. It means no one else but Kiki is permitted to make money from CC Kiwi. Kate wants to put a photo on T-shirt and distribute it to friends. He can do this but he must not sell them.
  • Not Synced
    This is no derivatives and it means that Kiri hasn't given permission to change her photo. Kate can use CC Kiwi on her design blog, but will need to ask Kiri before retouching or mixing up the image.

    This is share alike. It means new creations that use CC Kiwi need to carry the same licence. Jack incorporates his own remix of CC Kiwi in video installation but he must share the work under the same terms Kiri has. Each Creative Commons licence gives permission to share and enclosed the attribution rule. So people who find Creative Commons licensed work are automatically allowed to share it but are required to acknowledge you if they do.

    The other three licence elements are optional and you can choose which one to add if any. Here are 6 combinations that make up Creative Commons licences.

    The difference between them is how many rules apply when someone wishes to use your work.
    The attribution licence allows reusers the most freedom and the attribution non commercial non-derivatives licence allows the least freedom.
  • Not Synced
    The attribution Ęand Attribution -share alike license sometimes refer to as free cultural works approved licences. This three licences restrict commercial Ęuse of the work. And these two licences do not give permission for adapting or remixing.
    These two licences require new works to be licenced under the same terms.
