Creative Commons is an international non-profit organisation that provides free licences and tools that copyright owners can use to allow others to share, reuse and remix their material, legally. Releasing material under a CC licence makes it clear to users what they can or cannot do with the material. The six standardised CC licences each allow material to be used in a different way.

The organization supports and promotes CC activities around the world. Creative Commons Australia is a chapter of the Creative Commons Global Network that supports Creative Commons in Australia and administers the Australian Creative Commons licenses. Contact us if you have questions or want to stay in touch.
