ARTRIGHT has adopted the Share Alike license developed by the Creative Commons. This section briefly describes the license. 

Please visit the Creative Commons for more information and other licenses.

Share Alike

"The Share Alike license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial reasons, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use." Creative Commons

ARTRIGHT and Share Alike

  • The content on ARTRIGHT may be used by you:
  •      to copy
  •      to distribute and transmit
  •      to adapt and remix

There will be no copyright fee involved in the use of the content, however, you must attribute ARTRIGHT as the source of the content and if you alter, transform, build on the content or use the content for commercial gain, you may only distribute your new work under the same Share Alike license.

Therefore, you can use the content from ARTRIGHT as you like, but you must allow other people to use your work like we let you use our work... just like the Ubuntu philosophy.

Creative Commons

There are several types of Creative Commons licenses available. The Creative Commons License allows everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. 

The licenses enable people to easily change their copyright terms from the default of "all rights reserved" to "some rights reserved". The aim of the Creative Commons is to increase the amount of creativity in 'the commons'. They want to make available to the public, a body of work which is free, can be legally shared, that can be re-purposed and re-mixed.
