Creative Commons (CC) is a US-based non-profit organization that has created a set of licenses that help content owners legally share their knowledge and creativity to build a more equitable, accessible, and innovative world. CC’s free, easy-to-use copyright licenses provide a simple and standardized way to give the public permission to share and use your creative work–on conditions of your choice.
CC Affiliate Network includes over 500 researchers, activists, legal, education and policy advocates, and volunteers who serve as CC representatives in over 85 countries. Working alongside non-governmental institutions, universities, and public agencies, CC affiliates employ region-specific approaches to copyright and intellectual property that help solve local and global challenges. In Kenya, CIPIT is the CC Public Lead alongside Kenya Law which is the CC Legal Lead.
