Open Textbook Community Advocates CC BY License for Open Textbooks
Members of the Open Textbook community signed a joint statement today advocating the use of the CC BY license when creating open textbooks.
Our organizations share a mission to foster a vibrant OER ecosystem in which anyone can exercise the “5Rs” legal rights to: retain, reuse, revise, remix and redistribute open textbooks and other OER. The CC BY license makes it easier for all of us to achieve our objective: a world where open textbooks and OER can be easily remixed to meet local education needs.
This is why we believe that the CC BY license is the ideal Creative Commons license for open textbook. Detailed support is found on this page.
