It’s important that you know the rights of photos, music, and designs. For example, if you want to use music under your YouTube video, the music must be non-copyrighted. This means you can use it under your videos without the permission of the maker.
If you want to use music, photos or designs from others, please read the description (In the title or description must state that it is non-copyrighted content).
At the famous photo website Flickr and other big sites, you can see by every picture a Creative Commons license. In the description by YouTube videos, you see sometimes also in the description an alert with Creative Commons. But what does it mean?
Explanation of Creative Commons licenses
From “All Rights Reserved” to “Some Rights Reserved”
Creative Commons offers authors, artists, scientists, teachers, and all other creative creators the freedom to handle their copyrights in a flexible way. With a choice of six (free) available standard licenses, the copyright holder determines to what extent his or her work may be spread further and under what conditions it may.
With a Creative Commons license, you retain all your rights, but allow others to distribute your work, share it with others, or edit some work with some licenses. Offering your work under a Creative Commons license does not mean you enter your copyright. Without a Creative Commons license, anyone should explicitly ask you permission for each use of your work. With a Creative Commons license, you can make it clear to everyone at what time they may use your work without the need for permission.
These are the four building blocks of the licenses:
You allow others to copy, distribute, display, and enhance the copyrighted work, and to create derivative material that is based on your work – but only if you are listed as a creator.
Others may copy, display, distribute and enhance your work, as well as material that is based on your work, except for commercial purposes.
– No Derivative WorksActivatedWorks.
Others may copy, distribute, display and enhance your work provided that the work remains in its original state. It is not allowed for others to use your work as a basis for new material.
– Share Alike.
You allow others to make materials derived from your work, provided that they release it under the same license as the original work. The Attribution Prerequisite is a required part of each license and Equals and NoAccompanyWorks are incompatible in the same license. As a result, six different combinations are possible.
This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials.
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to “copyleft” free and open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. This is the license used by Wikipedia, and is recommended for materials that would benefit from incorporating content from Wikipedia and similarly licensed projects.
This license allows for redistribution, commercial and non-commercial, as long as it is passed along unchanged and in whole, with credit to you.
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.
This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
