About Creative Commons
Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that promotes the creative reuse of intellectual and artistic works - whether owned or in the public domain. Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms that build upon the "all rights reserved" concept of traditional copyright to offer a voluntary "some rights reserved" approach.
Currently, at least 20 country jurisdictions belong to Asia and the Pacific Region, namely: Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Mainland China, Georgia, Hongkong, India, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam.
