Copyright law says no one can copy something created by another — such as an article, book, photograph, website, song or video — without the author’s express permission. The Creative Commons project (creativecommons.org) makes it simpler for authors to give permission for certain uses without having to be asked specifically.
It is a way for authors to publish with some rights reserved rather than all rights reserved.
A version of the creative commons licence expressly tailored for Canadian law has just been released.
