Creative commons licenses: Authors decide on rights of use for their work
The rights of use of works deposited on the Institutional Repository of the FU are stipulated under
Rights of Use. However, authors can also offer
their work under a Creative Commons License (this option is under the field “Rights of use”), for example,
which permits commercial use or manipulation.
First, select the type of license for your work at creativecommons.org:
Next, delete the standard link and copy the entire content of the window (html code) into the metadata field “Rights of use”. After this has been saved there will be a link to creativecommons.org and to the license type you have selected plus the matching logo.
For example, this is what the code looks like:
<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/de/">
<img alt="Creative Commons License" style="border-width:0" src="http://i.creativecommons.org/l/by/2.0/de/88x31.png" />
<br />This content is licensed under a
<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0/de/">Creative Commons-Lizenz</a>.
The result looks like this:
This content is licensed under a
Creative Commons License.
