A Creative Commons license is one of several licenses that enable free distribution of work that is otherwise copyrighted. A Creative Common License (referred to as CCL from here forward in this article) license is used when an author wants to allow people to share used and even build upon work created by the author. A CCL gives the author flexibility and the right to establish who can and cannot use their work under a CCL. It also protects the people who use or redistribute an authors work from concerns of copyright infringement as long as they abide by the conditions set for in the license by the author.
There are several types of CCLsc that differ by combinations of the terms of distribution. Work that is licensed under CCL is governed by applicable copyright law. The advantage of a license is that it applies to all work falling under the copyright, including books, plays, movies, music, articles, photographs, blogs, and website
