a set of licences for sharing creative work with the world by permitting non-commercial copying.

Creative commons licences are a set of licences designed for the purpose of sharing ones work with the world. All creative commons licences allow to copy the work without fees and further restrictions as long as the work is unchanged, the original creators are credited and it is uncommercial. Some of the licences lift these restrictions even more, allowing to change the content or allow for commercial distribution.
