Using & Remixing Creative Commons Licensed Works

There are millions of Creative Commons licensed works. When using individual works, remember this simple approach when you attribute the source: TASL. Include the Title, the Author, the Source, and the License. Creative Commons licensed works may also include the rights to make a collection, adapt, or remix them. You'll want to refer to the license to see what you're allowed to do. Remember, if you adapt CC-licensed works, license compatibility is important.
