Founded in 2001, Creative Commons (CC) is an non-profit organisation that aims to increase the availability of creative works to the public for free and legal sharing use, repurposing and remixing. In a recent report published by CC, there are more than 882 millions CC-licensed content on the web. Among them, 56% of the content allow commercial use and adaptations. It is expected to reach 1 billion CC-licensed works in 2015 and continued to grow. 14 countries around the world have made national commitments to make digital resources more open for educational use.
