Assigning a Licence to Your Data

Assigning licences to data can also have disadvantages. Licences are static and do not change with the quick developments in the field of research data. Therefore, some data repositories work with a CC0 licence whereby no rights are reserved. Instructions regarding use are completed with codes of conduct, which may be adapted more easily.

A short movie explaining the different Creative Commons elements is shown below. Remember that sharing without a licence can still lead to conflicts.

Here’s a video from Kingsborough Community College that shows how you can add a CC licence to your work.
