YouTube and Creative Commons
From the day Creative Commons launched, we've sought to work with companies that provide content platforms to embed CC licensing as a choice for creators who want a different deal than the one that all-rights-reserved copyright law offers. It's been a long time coming, and I'm personally grateful to the staff at CC and at Google for making this happen.
The CC By license allows others to translate, mash-up, or otherwise adapt these videos as long as credit is given as directed by the copyright owner. I hope that the creative folks out there make use of the freedom that the CC license offers. Stay tuned . . . .
