What is Creative Commons?
Creative Commons (CC) is a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools.
Creators of works can use Creative Commons licenses to set conditions of their use, sharing, and derivatives. This is done to share work and make it more widely available to view and use. CC licenses generally do not take away a creator's copyright.
