What is "Creative Commons Content"?

Creative Commons is a way of licensing content you create so that you can share it with others. It's also a way of finding content that you can use for free. CC is a non-profit organization that has created 6 basic licenses that you can adopt for your work for free. The CC licensing scheme is meant to be simple and to allow people to share content with some restrictions easily and without incurring legal fees. Before you use any CC licenses, read the licenses and know how you want your work to be used. Once you apply a license to your work and share it, that license is permanent. Many free content sites allow you to filter by CC license, so that you can find content for free with few restrictions.
