+Using Creative Commons Public Licenses
+Creative Commons public licenses provide a standard set of terms and

+works of authorship and other material subject to copyright and certain
+other rights specified in the public license below. The following
+considerations are for informational purposes only, are not exhaustive, and
+do not form part of our licenses.
+Considerations for licensors: Our public licenses are intended for use by
+those authorized to give the public permission to use material in ways
+otherwise restricted by copyright and certain other rights. Our licenses
+are irrevocable. Licensors should read and understand the terms and
+conditions of the license they choose before applying it. Licensors should
+also secure all rights necessary before applying our licenses so that the
+public can reuse the material as expected. Licensors should clearly mark
+any material not subject to the license. This includes other CC-licensed
+material, or material used under an exception or limitation to
+copyright. More considerations for licensors :
+Considerations for the public: By using one of our public licenses, a
+licensor grants the public permission to use the licensed material under
+specified terms and conditions. If the licensor's permission is not
+necessary for any reason - for example, because of any applicable exception
+or limitation to copyright - then that use is not regulated by the
+license. Our licenses grant only permissions under copyright and certain
+other rights that a licensor has authority to grant. Use of the licensed
+material may still be restricted for other reasons, including because
+others have copyright or other rights in the material. A licensor may make
+special requests, such as asking that all changes be marked or described.
+Although not required by our licenses, you are encouraged to respect those
+requests where reasonable. More considerations for the public :

+ 1. Moral rights, such as the right of integrity, are not licensed
+ under this Public License, nor are publicity, privacy, and/or
+ other similar personality rights; however, to the extent
+ possible, the Licensor waives and/or agrees not to assert any
+ such rights held by the Licensor to the limited extent necessary
+ to allow You to exercise the Licensed Rights, but not otherwise.
+ 2. Patent and trademark rights are not licensed under this Public
+ 3. To the extent possible, the Licensor waives any right to collect
+ royalties from You for the exercise of the Licensed Rights,
