Creative Commons (CC) licenses provide those creating copyrightable
works with an opportunity to outline terms under which others can reuse them, eliminating the
need for users to seek permission for their use of the work. With over one billion CC licensed
works available online; chances are good that librarians and patrons encounter these works
frequently. Unfortunately there are many myths and misconceptions surround the CC licenses.
In this webinar, we will work to sort fact from fiction by exploring each of the seven licenses in-
depth, reviewing relevant court cases to see what they tell us about the use of CC licensed
works, and explore best practices for licensing our own works under CC licenses and helping our
patrons to do the same.
