Creative Commons License Types that Allow Commercial Use

 

  Attribution CC BY     This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation.   View License Deed | View Legal Code

 

    Attribution-ShareAlike      CC BY-SA     This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.  View License Deed | View Legal Code

 CC0 1.0 Universal    CC0    Also know as Creative Commons Zero, this  licensing tool lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, without a need for attribution. Creative Commons developed this tool to work in the “all rights granted” space of the public domain. The CC0 tool allows licensors to waive all rights and place a work in the public domain, and the Public Domain Mark allows any web user to “mark” a work as being in the public domain. Unlike other Creative Commons licence terms these works do not require attribution (although attribution is always appreciated).   View License Deed | View Legal Code

 

Creative Commons License Types that Allow Non-Commercial Use

 

  Attribution-NonCommercial   CC BY-NC    This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.  View License Deed | View Legal Code

 

  Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike  CC BY-NC-SA    This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms.  View License Deed | View Legal Code

 

  Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs   CC BY-NC-ND    This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.   View License Deed | View Legal Code
