Creative Commons is a nonprofit legal organization providing free and easy ways to grant freedoms to artistic work while retaining creator’s rights.

Creative Commons lets you share your art on your terms. The licenses are flexible and easy to use whether you’re looking to share a new single, pre-clear music for podcasting, start a remix/video contest, or use the power of a crowd to push your track to the world.

We all want music and art to remain a vital part of our lives as digital media changes the world around us. Creative Commons gives us a way forward that is sustainable for artists and audiences alike.
