Creative Commons created a license dedicated to sharing information, now in use in over a dozen countries. It pursues legal infrastructure, notably licenses, to promote open culture and the universal spread of information. Based on an idea by law professor and well-known author Lawrence Lessig, it is now a stable organization with supporters around the world, and its licenses appear on countless items in many different types of media.
