About Creative Commons
Creative Commons is a licensing feature that lets you maintain creative control over your photos by choosing whether others can reproduce or share your work. You can select from a variety of licensing options with Creative Commons. For example, you can choose to share images but prevent them from being re-mixed or used for commercial purposes.
Creative Commons (CC), a non-profit organization, provides this licensing feature and other free tools that let authors, scientists, artists, educators, and photographers easily mark their creative work with the freedoms they want it to carry. For more information, visit http://creativecommons.org/
