About Creative Commons Licenses

Post  BC Williams on Thu Oct 20 2011, 11:31

.
................. Most of us have wondered how we can protect our work, now that we've decided to go public with it via the Internet. Maybe you've even wondered what you need protection from. Recently, I was accused of plagiarizing my own work, though the accuser knew full well it was a falsehood. There are many ways to prove you are an author of a work. This article will not delve into the subject of copyright, but instead, a plausible means of directing your readers to treat your work as you have stipulated.

........ It may look and feel odd to some, to ALLOW others to copy their work. The plan simple fact is, some people may copy your work online anyway - so why not tell them *how* they may do it? With the use of a Creative Commons license, you have the power to:

.. .grant the right of others to copy your work
.. .allow or disallow others to make derivative works or adaptations of your work
.. .allow or disallow others to distribute your work and/or make money from your work

........ Mostly, we writers share our work online for two reasons: We feel we have something to say that others want to hear, and we want approval. I've shared my work on the net long enough to be flattered when someone asks me if they may copy my work for their own use - or to share it with a friend or group. I've even found my work on other websites, and was relieved that the Webmaster or Mistress included my name as author. With a Creative Commons license, my readers will feel free to enjoy my work. I Feel free to continue sharing my work because I can license it to be used in the manner in which I choose. I also know that I retain the full copyright to my work.

........ Here is a simple breakdown of the different licenses with their corresponding icon: Choosing A License

This is the license I choose to use on my work:


........ If you go here: License Your Work you can choose your license. You will be given a code to place at the bottom of your work.

*** It is recommended you still show your copyright in this format: © + date of conception + name of author © 2008 by James Robert Swickmen
