About Creative Commons License and Copyright

You may be familiar with the concept of copyright, but as a keyword related to copyright"Creative Commons License (CC)"There is a thing called.

Usually used in the sense of exercising all copyrights"All rights reserved"There is a notation."C"The same applies to the mark. In addition to this "All rights reserved", Creative Commons License is able to control the copyright by providing freedom of use.

I have heard about it somehow, but sometimes I hear that there are various types and I do not understand well. In fact, PORTALFIELD also uses many images in articles, and there are many opportunities to be aware of the copyright and royalty (the royalty of patents, copyrights, trademarks, etc.), so the meaning of memorandum and confirmation again I would like to comment on that.

With Creative Commons License

Let's look at what Creative Commons licenses are like, one by one.

This figure shows the relationship between Creative Commons license and copyright.

From top to bottom, usage restrictions become stronger, and "All rights reserved" does not use Creative Commons license.

How was it.

As a familiar example,Stock photoThe concept of "CC" that you can see when using etc. comes from here.

If you are looking at PORTALFIELD, I think that some of you have established a mountain climbing and outdoor related blog, but when you write a blog, the corner where you collected the photos of "CC0" will be used. I think there are more people.

Such "CC" is not only easy to understand when you use something that someone else owns has a copyright,Of course, you can use it for photos you own copyright.

With the Creative Commons License, you can use copyrights, such as photos and images, toThose who own the copyright can set and control their own freedom.

"I want a wide variety of people to use photos taken by myself, but please write only what I shot."

If you write Creative Commons at such time, it will be used according to the level.It is also an opportunity to be published in various media compared to the "C" mark display. I think that you can use it conveniently when you want to appeal your work.

"CC BY-ND (display-no modification)"Etc may be relatively easy to use.

Depending on how you use it, it is also effective as a means to widely distribute your work, so if you are interested please take advantage of it.
