Hi all,

See the message below. Wikimedia Deutschland has published a really good
and readable guide about how to use Creative Commons licenses. Very useful
for anyone in a cultural institution (thinking about) using the licenses.

Hi there,

maybe some of you have seen it already: Wikimedia Deutschland, the German
Commission for UNESCO and North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre
just published a guide on how to correctly use Creative Commons licenses.
You can read all about it here:

The guide also has a pretty nice Meta page (
where you can read the full text or download the PDF. Thanks to Jean-Fred
for turning on the translation tool! I am looking forward to the guide
being available in many, many languages.

If you have any comments or questions, please get in touch with me via
e-mail or the talk page on Meta (
