The author and the Publisher may adopt a Creative Commons copyright licence. All Creative Common licences are of international character and have been designed specifically for the Internet. We wish to encourage our authors/contributors to apply them because they give clear and straightforward information on how the particular work made accessible on the Internet may be legally used by all those who access it. Authors/contributors who decide to adopt a CC licence is kindly requested to contact his/her closest project partner or coordinator in order to discuss all details, selects the appropriate kind of CC licence to be applicable to his work/contribution.

The Creative Commons organization has released several open licences enabling the author to share his work with others while simultaneously securing his/her own copyright. Creative Commons licences follow the some rights reserved principle, therefore the extent to which the work accessible might be freely used is much greater than that specified by the all rights reserved formula. Creative Commons respects the creator’s right to specify to which extent he/she wishes to share his/her work with others or which rights to reserve and which to waive. At the same time the organization encourage contributors to create common culture, whose elements might be freely shared by all.
