Creative Commons (CC) is a non-profit organisation that releases pre-formulated copyright licences which give creators great flexibility in communicating which rights they reserve and which rights they waive when it comes to other people using their work. By default, copyright law reserves all exploitation rights exclusively for the copyright holder and excludes anyone else from exploiting a copyrighted work, so the Creative Common system introduces a more flexible means by which authors can control how they wish to share their works. Creative Commons licences can only be granted to works which are subject to copyright and can only be granted by the holder of the exploitation rights. That means that CC licences cannot be granted by authors who have signed over all their exploitation rights to a publisher or who have only retained a non-exclusive exploitation right. For research data CC licenses can only be granted if they have a certain originality and copyright is applicable. For instance, this does not apply to measurement data. In case of doubt case-by-case review is necessary. Creative Commons licenses are not recommended for software. The validity of a Creative Commons license is determined by the validity of the copyright.
