Creative Commons is an international non-profit organisation that provides free legal tools to enable people to share and reuse copyright works.
Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand is particularly interested in ensuring that publicly funded copyright works are open by default, to enable the active reuse of New Zealand's culture and knowledge.
Creative Commons provides free copyright licences to the public. These licences ensure that others can copy and distribute your work, provided they give your credit, on the conditions you specify.
The six CC licences are used by many OA publications around the world.
This licence lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation.
