Our Mission

Unlocking Knowledge to build a more Equitable and Innovative World

With the advent of the Internet, we’ve entered an era of untold potential for development, growth and productivity – but one that is increasingly hindered by restrictive copyright laws and incompatible technologies. Creative Commons helps you legally share your knowledge and creativity to build a more equitable, accessible, and innovative world.

Through a Creative Commons license, your work will join a rapidly-expanding community of:

·       more than 1.1 billion openly-licensed works,
·       from authors writing in 34 different languages,
·       that have been viewed online 136 billion times.
