Creating OER and Combining Licenses

Introduction to Creative Commons

Faculty Development Presentation: May 8, 2019

Adding a CC License allows you to retain your copyright, but also allow other to use and adapt your work. There are 6 CC Licenses that combine four elements, two that can be combined.  Each license permits different levels of sharing and rights. 

Just CC Licenses

Each CC License carries some use restrictions. The chart below illustrates how starting with work in the  public domain that has no restrictions, each license limits reuse, revision and commercial use.

Not all CC licenses work together.

Check to see that you're not mixing licenses

 EX: BY SA can't work with other licenses as BY SA only work with BY and all work going forward has to be licensed with BY SA.
