A Guide to Choosing an Open License

Open licences and the free sharing and reuse of materials online have become increasingly popular. Governments, institutions, communities and individual creators, particularly those in the open education field have realised that effective sharing of knowledge is best facilitated by using open licences, which enable permissions that traditional "All Rights Reserved" copyright does not. While current copyright law creates constraints on collaborative co-production, open licences enable large groups of people to efficiently co-create educational resources.
