What do CC Licenses do?

  • allow their holder to retain copyright while allowing others to copy, distribute, and make some uses of their work.
  • ensure license holders get the credit for their work they deserve.
  • work around the world and last as long as applicable copyright lasts (because they are built on copyright).
