The Jurisdiction Database is a dynamic resource containing information for Affiliates, scholars and others interested in CC's international community.


The Database contains the full text of the Unported and the jurisdiction-specific 3.0 licenses, which you can query by a range of variables. The license texts have been structured according to tags or keywords. Query one or more ported licenses (and Unported) for tagged license sections. Visit the Jurisdiction Database Research page for more information on using the data contained in this database. Please note that Creative Commons is not beginning any new ports in preparation for the upgrade to version 4.0.


The CC Affiliate Network consists of 100+ affiliates working in over 70 jurisdictions to support and promote CC activities around the world. Members of the Affiliate Network have formal agreements with Creative Commons. Enthusiasm for Creative Commons does not require a formal Affiliate Team. Creative Commoners around the world conduct events and share the news about CC without a formal relationship to Creative Commons. The flags below cover all jurisdictions included in the Jurisdiction Database, both members of the Affiliate Network and those who do not have formal agreements with CC. Click on the flags below to learn more about CC enthusiasts in these jurisdictions.

For more information on what it means to be a formal Affiliate, please see our Affiliates wiki page and our Introduction document.

Contributing to the Database

The Jurisdiction Database contains information on the Unported license and each Creative Commons affiliate jurisdiction (e.g. Germany, Estonia).

On these pages you have the opportunity to add or edit data about the jurisdiction, or data about the jurisdiction's 3.0 license porting process.

On each page, you can choose to edit the page directly as with a normal wiki page or edit via the "edit with form" link at the top of the page. This form will allow you to input information into labeled boxes and is suggested at least for edits to the sidebar.

The structure of pages follows this schema: <Jurisdiction>/3.0/<License>
