Creative Commons Australia have created a number of factsheets. This is an A3 poster flowchart to help people decide which Creative Commons licence (if any) is appropriate for what they want to do.
Start at the green question box and, following the arrows that correspond with your answer, make your way through the pink remixing and blue commercial questions until you reach a purple licence box. That will be the right licence for you. For the full details of each of the licences, see the link under the box.
You can also view the poster as a PDF document on a desktop client or, depending on your set up, within your web browser. Click here for the pdf document. If the file does not download, hold ‘Command’ and ‘click’ your mouse button and select ‘Download linked file as…’ if you use a Mac or ‘click’ your right mouse button and select ‘Save Link As’ if you use a PC.
