The Six Creative Commons Licenses & What They Mean

Creative Commons Licensing

Creative Commons Licenses are used by content creators to indicate ways they will allow usage of their creation by others.  These licenses range from the most restrictive copyright with all rights reserved to those that are free to share, modify and reuse for commercial purposes.  The copyright for the licensed materials are still held by the creator, but they are telling you up front what way they permit the material to be used. For "all rights reserved" materials, it will be necessary to seek permission from the copyright holder before most use.  For more information about allowed usage under copyright, please refer to the "Can I Use It?" box on this page, or click the copyright tab on this guide.
