How To Get a Creative Commons License for Your Published Content or PDF

How To Get a Creative Commons License for Your Published Content or PDF | Web Publishing Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



If you are a web publisher looking for an easy way to license some of your content under Creative Commons, here is a simple tool that can save you lots of time.


Go to http://creativecommons.org/choose/ and just select your preferences for the type of license you want and this Creative Commons tool automatically generates a logo and also some code that you can copy and paste into your selected web pages.


If you have an ebook or PDF I suggest you take a screenshot of the image and you include it with a link to the type of license you have selected. As a matter of fact this tool also provides the ability to generate a simple image that you can simply save by right-clicking on it. It remains your duty to link that image to the specific license type you have selected to make this truly effective.


For clarifying first your doubts about which type of license to use, I suggest that you give look at these two excellent infographics which illustrate quite well the different options and license types you have available.


a) http://visual.ly/what-creative-commons 


b) http://www.tagseoblog.com/what-means-creative-commons-infographic 


Finally, if you are interested in placing your work in the "public domain" without any type of license restriction you can do so here: http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/
