Creative commons or CC license is similar to a copyright. The chief difference being you allow others to share your work. Basically they aught to cite you. You have the option of allowing derivatives (edited, or your work is added to someone else’s). You also have the ability to set that they can share it if they share similar things too. And you can set if it can be used commercially or not. Basically, it protects your work and you choose limits on how it can be used.

Getting a creative commons license is very simple and there are a couple ways to it quickly. The easiest option is to use a platform that automatically licenses it for you (a list is available here). The second way requires minimal effort. The slightly more effort route as going to the creativecommons.org site and register. Don’t worry though, its free! Many argue that the internet’s basic structure was meant for sharing, and i tend to agree. But if your work is important to you, its a good idea to keep your bases covered.

Are you happy with your current CC situation? Do you know of any other platforms that give you a CC license? Or another way of getting the CC license?
I hope this post helped if you were looking into it!
