Creative Commons FAQ

What is Creative Commons and why should I use it?

Creative Commons is a form of licensing that bridges the gap between "all rights reserved" copyright and public domain. It allows creators let others easily use their work under specific conditions while retaining copyright and credit. For works that are not expressly marked Creative Commons, you must follow the legal requirements of the Copyright Act.
