Creative Commons is a great initiative to get copyright holders to share their work – but what exactly can you do with it as a fellow creator? This program will explain the Creative Commons copyright addition in context of sharing artistic work that wants to be shared and protected at the same time. Creators will be shown how they can not only take advantage of the Creative Commons copyrights on works they would like to use, but also how they can add the Creative Commons to their own original work to further sharing in the artistic community while protecting their work from being exploited.
