The CC copyright licences and tools forge a balance inside the traditional “all rights reserved” setting that copyright law creates allowing for certain material to be copied, distributed, edited, remixed and build upon – all within the boundaries of copyright law. Those who want to make their work available to the public for limited kinds of uses while preserving their copyright may want to consider using CC licences. Others who want to reserve all of their rights under copyright law should not use CC licences. CC helps you legally share your knowledge and creativity to build a more equitable, accessible, and innovative world. With a network of staff, board, and affiliates around the world, CC provides free, easy-to-use copyright licences to make a simple and standardised way to give the public permission to share and use your creative work–on conditions of your choice.
