Use and Modification: Using a Creative Commons License
Creative Commons helps an author publish his/her work online while letting others know exactly what they can and can’t do with the work. The following describes each of the six main licenses offered when an author chooses to publish work with a Creative Commons license. They are listed starting with the most restrictive license type one can choose and ending with the most accommodating license type that can be chosen. It’s also helpful to know there are a set of baseline rights all six licenses offer to others.
Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd):
This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, allowing redistribution. This license is often called the “free advertising” license because it allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa):
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature.
Attribution Non-commercial (by-nc):
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
Attribution No Derivatives (by-nd):
This license allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you.
Attribution Share Alike (by-sa):
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use.
This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered, in terms of what others can do with your works licensed under Attribution.
Creative Commons also offer a set of other licenses for more specialized applications. Sampling Licenses allow for snippets (not whole work) to be remixed into new works, even commercially. A Public Domain Dedication lets the author offer free works from copyright completely, and a Founders Copyright lets the author do the same, but after 14 or 28 years. Musicians looking to share their work with fans might look at the Music Sharing license. The Developing Nations license lets an author offer less restrictive terms to countries that aren’t considered high income by the World Bank, and finally, for those licensing software, Creative Commons offers the GNU GPL and GNU LGPL licenses.
All Creative Commons licenses have many important features in common.
Every license will:
- retain the copyright
- announce that other people’s fair use, first sale, and free expression rights are not affected by the license.
Every license requires licensees
- to get your permission to do any of the things you choose to restrict — e.g., make a commercial use, create a derivative work;
- to keep any copyright notice intact on all copies of your work;
- to link to your license from copies of the work;
- not to alter the terms of the license
- not to use technology to restrict other licensees’ lawful uses of the work
Every license allows licensees, provided they live up to your conditions,
- to copy the work
- to distribute it
- to display or perform it publicly
- to make digital public performances of it (e.g., webcasting)
- to shift the work into another format as a verbatim copy
- applies worldwide
- lasts for the duration of the work’s copyright
- is not revocable
