Who can license a work under a CC license?

CC licenses can only be given by the author if the author has ownership of his publication or is the holder of the copyright of the work.

If the exclusive right to use the work has been transferred to the publisher, usually the author can not publish the work anymore under the CC license.

In addition, all co-authors, holders of the images, must agree to the licensing.

How can I publish a work under a CC license?

The work is publishing under the CC license, referring to the license in the work. Note that the license link and, if you want, the license logo must be located in a place available to the user (for example, on the title page).

If the work contains only some components with open content (such as an image), a reference to the license should be added to the appropriate component, such as a caption.

The license link should include the name of the license, a stable license URL, and, if you want, the logo of the license.

You can generate a license on the official CreativeCommons website https://creativecommons.org/choose/?lang=uk

Can I cancel the licensing of my work under a Creative Commons license?

You cannot revoke a CC license. In addition, "more liberal" CC licenses cannot be subsequently converted to "more limited" CC licenses.
