In certain scenarios, you may lose all of your ability to protect your work and prevent others from using it, even if you only intended it to be freely used in particular circumstances. Thankfully, a creative commons license enables you to keep your copyright while allowing some sectors of the public to utilize your work under specified limitations.
Creative commons licenses provide a significant lot of freedom. The many forms are all determined by the kind of rights you wish to keep or how you want others to utilize the work. Attribution rights, share-alike rights, non-commercial rights, and no derivative works are the four fundamental forms.
