How To Attribute Creative Commons media

CC Licences provides information about the different types of licenses and what they mean. For example, two commonly used CC licenses are :

  • Attribution is indicated by  CC BY … ‘This license lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation’.
  • Attribution-ShareAlike  is indicated by CC BY-SA ‘This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms’.
