Creative Commons Licences

Creative Commons licences ("CC licences") permit the copying, reuse, distribution, and in some cases, modification of creative work without having to obtain permission every single time from the rights holder.
The briefing paper referred to below provides JISC-funded projects, as well as content creators and others within higher (HE) and further education (FE) institutions, with information that can be used to make judgements as to when the use of open content licences, particularly Creative Commons licences, may be appropriate - http://www.jisc.ac.uk/publications/briefingpapers/2009/bpcreativecommons.aspx.
