CC’s Next Generation Licenses — Welcome Version 4.0!
Creative Commons proudly introduced the 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. Creative Commons has incorporated dozens of improvements that make sharing and reusing CC-licensed materials easier.
Among other exciting new features are improved readability and organization, common-sense attribution, and a new mechanism that allows those who violate the license inadvertently to regain their rights automatically if the violation is corrected in a timely manner.
