Creative Commons provides a set of copyright licenses and tools "that give everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to keep their copyright while allowing certain uses of their work."

The idea is to make sharing on the Internet more straightforward and understandable, so people do it more.

Periodically, we like to check with our readers to see if they are aware of Creative Commons, and if they use any of the CC licenses.

If you use any Creative Commons licenses tell us how in the comments.

I use CC on my website and most of my creative work: http://me.sovietika.com/ Personally I think is the best way to share online content and even offline. I really like the concept of retaining ownership of a work, with the freedom for others to share without legal problems. It's fair to all, for the creator and the rest of the world.

I use creative commons to share my product designs (http://www.designoteca.com/usuarios/2) at sites like Designoteca.com or Thingiverse.com . I feel as creative coomons is still a new thing for product designers and they often are afraid of using it...

I agree, most creators are afraid to try such things because it is different from what we've grown up with. That's why it is so important to promote CC. I like your designs, and so I've just added your pen-plane to my Pinterest "Free Culture" page http://pinterest.com/pin/171840542002136308/
