Need to know about copyright licences for creative works
17 August 2018 | Updated 16 November 2019
Copyright laws in most countries allow creators lawful ownership of their original, creative works (e.g. images, text, videos, audio, etc). Copyright holders (authors) have the right to determine how their works are used by other people. By applying a copyright licence to a creative work, copyright holders can give permission for others to use that work in ways that would otherwise infringe copyright law.
