Creative Commons content is not copyrightedEdit

Creative Commons licences are part of the copyleft category more exactly, not the copyright one like someone told here. Lupigeo () 08:49, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

I add that not all Creative Commons licences are under copyleft because sometimes ShareAlike condition is not granted (CC BY, CC BY-NC, CC0), excepting for CC BY-SA, CC BY-NC-SA, CC BY-ND, CC BY-NC-ND (ND condition grants SA automatically). Lupigeo () 09:41, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Copyleft is a form of copyright -- RansomTime 13:43, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Copyleft is the opposite of copyright, not a form of it. I always can copy an opera under copyleft. Lupigeo () 14:14, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Um, no, "copyleft" IS just a cool name for a form of copyright. Copyleft is also not a valid legal term, so all "copylefted" works are copyrighted in the eyes of the law. Master Foo (talk) 12:58, November 8, 2013 (UTC)


Since DMCA is an American law, I suppose Wikia is governed by it because its HQ and master servers are in the USA? Master Foo (talk) 13:02, November 8, 2013 (UTC)
