Building on the Past

Creativity always builds on the past But sometimes the law can get in the way Copyright law restricts your access to the past and restricts other people's access to your work but what if we could take the law into our own hands? uh... what if we could make our own rules? well, with a Creative Commons license you can! Creative Commons lets you build a custom license with as many or as few restrictions as you want. for example don't want someone to use your song for commercial purposes? no problem. want someone to use your movie as long as they give you credit? you got it. want someone to use your poem as long as they don't change it? piece of cake. it's up to you. and it's really easy. just go to creativecommons.org the site will generate everything you need to license and share your creations... poems and stories, original music and audio, photos and videos, essays and ideas. you don't need a lawyer to understand it and it's free. creativity always builds on the past. and you're building the past right now. share now. shape tomorrow. creative commons.
