Awesome Visual on Creative Commons

By definition, Creative Commons is " a nonprofit organization that works to  increase the amount of creativity (cultural, educational, and  scientific content) available in “the commons” — the body of  work that is available to the public for free and legal sharing, use,  repurposing, and remixing."

Creative Commons Licenses provide a standard way for user-generated content creators to grant someone else permission to use their work, in other words, a Creative Commons license is used when  the authors want to give others the rights to share, use , or build upon the work they have created.
