What is Creative Commons Licensing?

Creative Commons (CC) licensing refers to a public copyright license that enables the free distribution of an otherwise copyrighted piece of work. For example, a CC license is used when a creator - such as an author, photographer, or artist - wants to give other people the right to share and use work that they have created. There are six different types of CC license in total - some require that credit be given to the creator for example, while others specify that the content can only be used for non-commercial projects.
