Creative Commons copyright licenses provide a simple, standard way of giving permission to share and use your creative work. You choose the conditions under which your work may be used. They also provide a convenient way to determine whether content you discover online can be re-used.

Here are the six licenses that you can choose from:

CC BY CC BY 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.
CC BY-SA CC BY-SA This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. Any new work created has to carry the same licence.
CC BY-ND CC 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.
CC BY-NC CC 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.
CC BY-NC-SA CC 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.
CC BY-NC-ND CC BY-NC-ND This licence allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
