Creative Commons 4.0: it’s here!


CC 4.0

On the 26 of November 2013 Creative Commons (CC) announced that Version 4.0 of its licensing suite is now available for use worldwide: ‘We proudly introduce our 4.0 licenses, now available for adoption worldwide. The 4.0 licenses — more than two years in the making — are the most global, legally robust licenses produced by CC to date. We have incorporated dozens of improvements that make sharing and reusing CC-licensed materials easier and more dependable than ever before’’.

The improvements in Version 4.0 reflect the needs of a diverse and growing user base. The new licenses include provisions related to database rights, personality rights, data mining, and other issues that have become more pertinent as CC’s user base has grown.
