If you can't find a direct link to the license below, search from the Creative Commons home page. All licenses require that the author and the licensing terms are correctly mentioned in case of redistribution, but differ in the licensing terms as described below.

See also: Template:CopyCC for Creative Commons attribution.


The "Attribution" only license is the "freest" Creative Commons license, which allows free use and the creation of derivative works (e.g. arrangements).

This is roughly equivalent to the BSD license for software.

Attribution 1.0
Attribution 2.5
Attribution 3.0 Unported
Attribution 4.0

Specific national jurisdictions

Attribution 3.0 Australia
Attribution 3.0 Germany

Attribution-Share Alike

The "Attribution-Share Alike" license also allows free use, but requires that derivative works are also distributed under the Share-Alike license.

This is roughly equivalent to the GNU General Public license for software.

Attribution-Share Alike 1.0 Generic
Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic
Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 Generic
Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported

The other licenses either forbid free usage ("Noncommercial") or the creation of derivative works ("No Derivative Works") or both. So "Noncommercial - No Derivative Works" is quite close to "All rights reserved".
