Creative commons refer to the license issued to the copyright owners, giving anyone in the world a right to use their work with this license. It is an active nonprofit organization that provides free licenses to copyright owners. A creative commons license indicates what others can do with your work. Each work is automatically protected by the copyright license, meaning people need to ask for permission first as a copywriter before owning the work.
Copyright protection prevents people from using others’ work in a certain way, such as copying or duplicating the work online.
