Next, proceed. I made a mistake. I was correct! Creative Commons Licenses are made up of four license elements: By, SA, NC, and ND. They can be combined to provide six distinct licensing choices. Turn the cards over to discover more about the elements represented by the icons.
The icons show the following elements: "By" means that the work is licensed under the terms set out by its copyright holder. "SA" means that the work is shared under the terms set out by its copyright holder, who has declared it to be free software.
"NC" means that the work is not shared but may be used under certain conditions set out by its copyright holder. "ND" means that the work is not shared and may not be used at all.
A work covered by multiple copyrights is usually released under several licenses. For example, a book might be released under the CC BY-SA 3.0 license as well as the GNU Free Documentation License. In this case, you would need to follow both sets of rules to use the document correctly. However, as long as you follow both sets of rules, you should be able to use the material according to how you see fit.
Insert a copy of the relevant Creative Commons symbol from this page: http://creativecommons.org/about/downloads. Include a link to the relevant license in your licensing text. You can also include a brief summary of the license's terms.
You can also insert a link using the HTML code below: CC BY 4.0.
Attribution through Creative Commons licenses allows others to build on your work and share their changes back to you. This way, everyone can contribute to science and knowledge building.
The most permissive license is the GNU Free Documentation License (GNU FDL), which allows copying, distribution and modification of the licensed material; however, modifications must be distributed under the same license as the original.
Other free documentation licenses include the Open Document License and the Mozilla Public License. These licenses are less restrictive than the GNU FDL but more restrictive than the GNU General Public License.
The most restrictive license is the GNU General Public License (GPL). Under this license, you can't change the licensed material or use its derivative works for commercial purposes. The GPL is often used by software libraries to protect the work and its contributors from infringement. However, it can also be used to prevent users from modifying or reusing the library's components for other programs.
In general, use a license that allows others to share and modify your work while still allowing you to distribute modified versions.
A Creative Commons (CC) license is one of several public copyright licenses that allow for the free dissemination of a copyrighted "work." A Creative Commons license is used when an author want to grant others the freedom to share, use, and build on a work that they (the author) have created. The three most common types of CC licenses are the GNU Free Documentation License, the Public Domain Dedication and License, and the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license.
Creative Commons does not produce works, so it cannot assign rights. Instead, it provides guidelines for how people can use works already published under copyright law. Creative Commons licenses provide a standard way for authors to let others reuse their work while maintaining their own copyright protections.
The main difference between traditional copyrights and Creative Commons licenses is that the former give the owner of the copyright exclusive control over what happens to their work, while the latter allow others to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work without having to obtain permission from its original creator.
CC licenses were developed as a way for copyright holders to make their work available for others to build upon legally. The goal is to allow developers to create applications, sites, or other content using freely available content while still protecting their own work. For example, someone may create software under a GNU General Public License but include elements such as music tracks or images that are covered by different licenses.
A CC license is used when an author want to provide others the right to share, utilize, and build upon his or her work. There are four basic types of CC licenses: Attribution, Attribution-NonCommercial, Attribution-NoDerivs, and Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs.
An attribution license allows users to download and reuse the work only if they also include a link back to the original work. This type of license should be used when other people's ideas are being passed off as their own or where additional restrictions on commercial use are not desired. Examples of attribution licenses include Creative Commons Attribution and Attribution-NonCommercial.
A non-commercial license allows users to download and reuse the work without paying any royalties or giving anything in return. This type of license should be used where authors would like to ensure that their work is available for free but would like to limit the ways it can be shared. Examples of non-commercial licenses include Creative Commons Non-Commercial and CC BY-NC-SA.
A sharing-friendly license is designed with the aim of making it easy and comfortable for others to share and distribute your work. These types of licenses should be used where authors want to make their work available for free but don't want to restrict its usage significantly.
There are six types of licenses available. Optional Creative Commons License There are six distinct license types, listed here from most permissive to least lenient: CC BY-SA: This license permits reusers to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the work in any media or format as long as the originator is credited. The license also allows for modification under the same terms, but not distribution without permission.
CC BY-NC-SA: This is a non-commercial license that is the same as CC BY-SA except it does not permit distribution for commercial purposes. For example, bloggers or teachers who want to use photos for educational purposes must use this license.
CC BY-NC-ND: This is a non-commercial license that has some limitations on redistribution. For example, educators can use its content in their classrooms as long as they follow the terms of the license. However, they cannot sell items made using the material.
CC BY-NC-NC: This is a non-commercial license with no restrictions on redistribution or usage. Any person or organization can use this license for any purpose.
CC Zero: This license was created by Creative Commons as an alternative to traditional copyright. It allows creators to specify how others can reuse their works by releasing them into the public domain or under a more flexible license.
What are the different Creative Commons licenses? Creative Commons licenses make it simple to control the copyright terms that are automatically attached to every creative output protected by copyright. Our licenses enable that material to be shared and reused under flexible and legally valid terms. They do this by allowing others to share and reuse the work under their own terms, as long as they follow the rules set out in the license.
CC licenses can be applied to existing works, such as photos or articles. They also can be used with some types of new works, such as software or movies. The type of CC license you select determines what kind of sharing is allowed. For example, a CC Zero license allows anyone to copy, modify, or distribute your work free of charge. A CC BY-SA 4.0 license allows your work to be shared as long as it is distributed under the same license.
