Creative Commons is a non-profit organization that encourages the sharing and reuse of creative content.

A flexible set of copyright licenses that allow content creators to specify and give up the rights they retain in their work to encrypt the network share. There are six main Creative Commons licenses based on four terms that creators can choose from: Attribution, Share Alike, Noncommercial, and No Derivatives. The least restrictive license is an Attribution license, which gives anyone from individuals to large corporations the right to distribute, display, or use a work as long as the author is credited. The most restrictive is Non-Commercial Recognition Without Derivatives, which only allows for redistribution. First published in December 2002 by the nonprofit Creative Commons under the GNU GPL open source license, these licenses are currently used for approximately 130 million works worldwide. The glossary you are reading is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike license to encourage wide distribution and participation. (See also open source)
