This is a page about marking your work with CC licensing. If you are interested in this technically, please jump ahead.

Get a license from -- the results page includes instructions for several common cases (e.g., web, offline). Graphical assets are available from

Marking Info Basics

  • Normal CC license button icons (with the cc)
  • FULL URI to cc license
  • Background color like the normal human deeds (green -> yellow)
  • NOTE: Author, date and copyright statement should be added to this slide by author, and/or on another still.
    • author(s) & date
    • "Some rights reserved."

Standard Tagging

  • Best way to tag creativecommons licenses
  • tags: creativecommons, by-nc, 3.0
  • add license url into the description



  • audio bumper stating license and authors
    • NOTE: Audio id3 is pretty good and audio bumper is annoying
      • putting on songs is stupid
      • putting audio bumper on podcast is useful
  • auto-generate cd case/liner notes -
  • important to use tagging standard of cc licensing for the file name


How to mark video work:

  1. CC Bumper - A notice in the beginning or end of your video stating the license
    1. Download the official CC Bumper
    2. Create your own CC Bumper using these guidelines
    3. Browse user submitted bumpers
      1. "ViewShareRemix is a project to support open movies, by creating standard identifying marks and supporting visuals. Our initial aim is to create a pro-sharing equivalent for filmmakers to the anti-piracy notices and videos seen on traditional video content. We see it as a complement to the Creative Commons-licenses."
  2. Copyright Statement- A line of text stating the author(s), date & copyright
    1. can be added to the bumper or go on a separate slide
    2. May be followed by "Some Rights Reserved"
    3. example: (c) Name 2007, Some Rights Reserved
  3. Learn more about how to publish your video to youtube,, etc.
  • Video templates from Jordan Nash.
    • A general use template, to be shown at the beginning or end of a video (the copyright statement at the bottom would be filled in by the content author):

By-nc-sa-2.5-notice v3.0.png

    • For works long enough to justify a credits reel, more detailed information would be appended to the credits. This information would include the deed terms as spelled out on the CC web page: Detailed contact information would also be included for the author, so that a person who wished to negotiate for a more liberal use could do so.
    • Slightly animated earlier version of above, to showcase various background options -- File:By-nc-sa-2.5-notice.m4v
      • Other variations and related files, including source, can be found at Jordan's website.
  • A crew of Videobloggers created CC bumpers to add to your videos at SuperHappyVlogHouse in San Francisco. Please feel free to use these on the end of your videos!
