What does Creative Commons mean?
Creative Commons is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon legally and to share. The organization has released several copyright-licenses known as Creative Commons licenses. These licenses allow creators to communicate which rights they reserve, and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients or other creators. The result is a flexible and user-friendly copyright-management regime. [Wikipedia]
What is Creative Commons Zero (“CC0 1.0”)?
Any work with the CC0 1.0 license has been dedicated to the public domain by its creator. The use of this license means that the creator of the work has waived all of his or her rights to the work. Anyone anywhere can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission.
