Creative Commons Licenses:

  • Attribution (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, in terms of what others can do with your works licensed under Attribution. The complete terms for the Attribution license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
  • Attribution Share Alike (by-sa) – This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. The complete terms for the Attribution Share Alike license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
  • Attribution No Derivatives (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. The complete terms for the Attribution No Derivatives license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
  • Attribution Non-commercial (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. The complete terms for the Attribution Non Commercial license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
  • Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (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. Others can download and redistribute your work just like the by-nc-nd license, but they can also translate, make remixes, and produce new stories based on your work. All new work based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also be non-commercial in nature. The complete terms for the Attribution Non Commercial Share Alike license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
  • Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd) – Choose by-nc-nd license. This license is the most restrictive of the six main Creative Commons licenses, allowing redistribution. This license is often called the “free advertising” license because it allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they mention you and link back to you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially. The complete terms for the Attribution Non Commercial No Derivatives license are attached here and are incorporated herein by this reference.
