Creative Commons Licences


Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators. We have built upon the "all rights reserved" concept of traditional copyright to offer a voluntary "some rights reserved" approach. We're a nonprofit organization. All of our tools are free.

From now until December 31, Creative Commons is hosting its annual fundraising campaign. We offer several ways to support CC both financially and in practice — for more information check out the support section of our site. Your contributions to CC are not only tax deductible — they also show the world that you value a participatory creative culture.
