Creative Commons is a world wide project that encourages copyright owners to allow others to share, reuse and remix their material, legally. We offer a range of free licences that creators can use to manage their copyright in the online environment, each providing its own specific protections and freedoms. We have built upon the “all rights reserved” of traditional copyright to create a voluntary “some rights reserved” system.

This is the site’s main page for information and resources about the Creative Commons system. For a basic introduction to Creative Commons and Creative Commons Australia see the About section.
