This article explores some of the issues related to the use of the Creative Commons (CC) licences. Six types of CC licences are described, from the least to the most restrictive. Each publisher needs to make his own decision about whether to use them according to their advantages and disadvantages, guided by the difference between “some rights reserved” and “all rights reserved”.
