Creative common license

All Creative Commons licenses have many important features in common. Every license helps creators we call them licensors if they use our tools retain copyright while allowing others to copy, distribute, and make some uses of their work at least non-commercially. Every Creative Commons license also ensures licensors get the credit for their work they deserve. Every Creative Commons license works around the world and lasts as long as applicable copyright lasts (because they are built on copyright). These common features serve as the baseline, on top of which licensors can choose to grant additional permissions when deciding how they want their work to be used. The Creative Commons copyright licenses and tools forge a balance inside the traditional “all rights reserved” setting that copyright law creates. Our tools give everyone from individual creators to large companies and institutions a simple, standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. The combination of our tools and our users is a vast and growing digital commons, a pool of content that can be copied, distributed, edited, remixed, and built upon, all within the boundaries of copyright law.  Creative Commons licenses require licensees to get permission to do any of the things with a work that the law reserves exclusively to a licensor and that the license does not expressly allow. Licensees must credit the licensor, keep copyright notices intact on all copies of the work, and link to the license from copies of the work. Licensees cannot use technological measures to restrict access to the work by others.

Professionals 

Professionals have to be very careful with what they can use because fr the most part the outcome of them using the copyright work and remixing it would be for profits and if there’s complications with the copyright, the re mixer can get in some trouble. Sometimes even result in being sued due to in-proper documentation they failed to do right with. You can read more on copyright and copyright works here.

Students 

If the work is intended for work to turn in the student still has to comply to copyright usage technically, although if the student doesn’t use the work for profits and does not allow the work to get out in the internet then technically secretly the student can use works. Then again if your’e afraid of getting “caught” then don’t use it, anything under fair use can be used technically.
