Share your writing with the world and let others build upon it, without fear of copyright infringement!
Creative Commons licenses are frequently of interest to writers, photographers, musicians, filmmakers and artists, but can be misunderstood. This workshop will teach you about CC licenses, which allow you to give others permission to use, share, and adapt your creations in the ways you choose. Learn how to apply CC licenses to your work and how to find CC-licensed material created by others.
