creative commons

I’m sure you’ve heard of copyright:

Copyright is a set of exclusive rights granted to the author or creator of an original work, including the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work. Copyright does not protect ideas, only their expression or fixation. – wikipedia

Did you know there is such thing as a “copyleft”?

…the practice of using copyright law to offer the right to distribute copies and modified versions of a work and requiring that the same rights be preserved in modified versions of the work. – wikipedia

Creative Commons gives you a way to copyleft your art, so other people can share and use your work.

Autumn is fast approaching. I’ve already noticed the strange way the world seems a little quieter in autumn. Check out this stunning photo, which I’m allowed to share here because of the creative commons copyright (this is the version of the copyright used).
