The Creative Commons Name It! - So pass it on! 3.0 (CC-BY-SA-3.0 for short) is a license agreement, one of the license forms developed by a non-profit organization called Creative Commons. The license agreement sets out the rights and obligations of re-users of textual content or non-textual media files (images, graphics, audio files, videos, etc.). CC-BY-SA-3.0 is a so-called free license, with the help of which the author of the work or the rightholder waives certain rights, but at the same time imposes certain conditions on re-users. "Some rights reserved!" According to the licensor, "current copyright laws are quite inflexible and offer performers two options: either grant all licenses to distribute the materials, or reserve all rights to themselves." The creators of the license have recognized that copyright regulation can be an obstacle to development in many cases, as new ideas are always based on existing ones. However, making content available to the public “does not strike a balance between the interests of authors and other rightholders and those of users and the general public”. To put it bluntly, the content published under the CC-BY-SA-3.0 license is one of these two options, All Rights Reserved! (copyrighted content) and No rights reserved! (public domain content) (Some rights reserved!). All text and some images submitted to Wikipedia are licensed under CC-BY-SA-3.0. The full text of the license, called the legal version, is available at: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/legalcode The Hungarian version of the license can be read here: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/deed.hu What rights does the license provide? "You are free to copy, distribute, present and perform the work." "You can create derivative works (adaptations)." The license therefore allows the work to be modified as well as for commercial (business) use - there are no restrictions in this regard. What are the terms of the license? "You must provide information related to the work in a manner determined by the author or rightholder." "If you change, modify, or process this work, you may only distribute the resulting work under the same license as the current one." "For any use or distribution, you must clearly indicate to others the license terms for this work." This means that you must attach a license statement to the work. The license does not affect the personal rights of the author or the rights of others (such as privacy rights and privacy rights).
