Do you use Creative Commons licenses on YouTube?

Creative Commons

  • helps you share your knowledge and creativity with the world
  • develops, supports and stewards legal and technical infrastructure
  • maximizes digital creativity, sharing, and innovation

There is no registration to use the Creative Commons licenses. Licensing a work is as simple as selecting which of the Creative Commons licenses best meets your goals, and then marking your work in some way so that others know that you have chosen to release the work under the terms of that license.

Tell us your Creative Commons license story. Why do you like it? Or why don't you use this license? Have you thought about it, but have reservations and unanswered questions?

I've had the CC license badge on the footer of my blog since day one. What's wild is that I've actually had an educator contact me to talk about it, even though I don't really mention it much in the content of my posts. ^_^

We recommend and support the implementation of the Creative Commons Licenses and public domain dedication mark by all of the Australian governments and research bodies.
