How do I decide which CC license to use?


If you are unsure which license best suits your needs, there are plenty of resources to help rights holders choose the right CC license:

  • The CC License Chooser will guide you through the process with a few clicks.

  • CC Australia has developed a flow chart that may be useful in helping you settle on the right license for your work.

  • Creative Commons has also compiled a list of examples that demonstrate how various licenses fit into licensors’ overall strategies.

  • You can also read case studies of others who are using CC licenses.

  • The CC community can also respond to questions, and may have already addressed issues you raise. The CC community email discussion lists and discussion archives may be useful resources.

Finally, you may also want to consult with a lawyer to obtain advice on the best license for your needs (Source).
