What are the different types of Creative Commons licenses?

Answer

The different types of Creative Commons licenses are the Attribution, Attribution-ShareAlike, the Attribution-NoDerivs, Attribution-NonCommericial, Attribution-NonCommericial-ShareAlike and the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs. Each license provides the user of a creative work different rights of use, if any, of a creation.

The Attribution license lets others distribute and remix another persons work as long as credit is given to the creator. This is recommended for work intended for exposure purposes. The attribution license even allows work to be altered for commercial purposes.

The Attribution-ShareAlike license allows tweaked versions of the creative work to be used for all purposes as long as credit is given to the original creator and the altered and original creation are credited under the same terms. This allows the creator to benefit from any of the benefits that the altered creation receives.

The Attribution-NoDerivs license allows for any type of redistribution of a creative work, but it can not be changed, and all credit has to go to the original creator.

The Attribution-NonCommercial license allows others to alter the original work, but they are only allowed to distribute it non-commercially. Credit must be given to the original creator, but the derivative of the work does not have to be licensed on the same terms.

The Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike allows others to alter the original work, but the original creator must be credited, and the new creations must be licensed under the same terms.

The Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs is the most restrictive license. It disallows anyone form changing the original product or using it commercially. Creative work can only be downloaded and shared, and credit must be given each time the work is shared.
