Creative Commons License is a document that provides individual creators and large institutions with the public permission to implement their creative work under copyright law. Six types of licenses allow operating in various ways. For example, CC BY license facilitates commercial use of the creative property by distributing, remixing, adapting, and building upon a given format. At the same time, CC BY-SA gives the right to share adaptation under identical terms (Creative Commons). CC BY-NC allows only non-commercial implementation of the work emphasized by the creator. In contrast, CC BY-NC-SA could be non-commercial and require the same terms to post adaptation (Creative Commons). In CC BY-ND, the license does not permit any derivatives or adaptations (Creative Commons). On the other hand, CC BY-NC-ND, the license prohibits non-commercial use and any derivatives or adaptations of the creative property. The common thing that unifies all types of the license is that all of them need the creator’s approval to implement the material.
