From simple blogs to elaborate user-generated content sites,there are easy ways to share website content by publishing itunder a Creative Commons license. This document providesa basic overview o how you may integrate Creative Commonslicensing into your website.
License Content
Visit the Creative Commons license page and use our simplelicense chooser to select a Creative Commons license thatindicates how others may use your creative content. Manywebsites apply a deault license to govern all the content onthat site. For example, Creative Commons publishes all contenton its site under the Creative Commons Attribution license(http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/) and displays thisat the bottom o every page.Many wikis and remix sites use a single deault license orthe entire site so that all the content is cross-compatible.User-generated content sites like Flickr, Blip.tv, andSlideShare give contributors the option o setting a deaultcontent license, and allow the use o a dierent license orindividual content items.The CC Javascript Widget (http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Jswidget) provides another lightweight method or integratinglicense selection into web applications. The licensing widget isused by TypePad as well as in WpLicense or Wordpress.
Publish License
Ater reviewing the conditions and selecting a license, grab thebasic HTML code that is produced and add it to your website. Forexample, users who choose the Creative Commons Attributionlicense receive the ollowing code snippet:
<a rel=”license”href=”http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/”><img alt=”Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License”src=”http://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/3.0/us/88x31.png”/></a><br/>This work is licensed under a <a rel=”license”href=”http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/us/”>Creative Commons Attribution 3.0United States License</a>.
The code will display an icon as well as a link to the ulllicense deed hosted at the Creative Commons site. This is theappropriate way to mark your CC-licensed content.I you are using multiple licenses on your website, replace the licenseURLs with the appropriate variables that signal another license.
RDFa allows building metadata into XHTML and other XMLdocuments with attributes. It is a good way to exhibit semanticrelationships or search engines. RDFa allows users toannotate human readable notices on individual assets thatinclude the custom properties needed or attribution and otheruseul properties.
