Creative Commons’ Next Generation Licenses – What’s New in Version 4.0.

Creative Commons (CC) recently launched a new version of their copyright license suite which allows creators “to communicate which rights they reserve and which rights they waive for the benefit of recipients.”  The 4.0 CC licenses have a global jurisdiction as CC worked closely with an “international network of affiliates and countless other experts and stakeholders to make 4.0 the most internationally enforceable set of CC licenses to date.” Additionally, the 4.0 version updates the attribution requirement to be more “common-sense” and contains a 30-day window to correct license violations.
