When I create content for my blog, I want people to both enjoy the content, but also share it. I also want people to use my content to create more content as long as it can continue to be shared and used as I intended. Using a Creative Commons License for my blog makes it easier for people to use my content while still respecting my copyright. In other words, I am not giving up my copyright – I am revising it. You can check out the video to learn more about Creative Commons.
