Creative Commons license

A Creative Commons license is one of several public copyright licenses that enable the free distribution of an otherwise copyrighted "work". A CC license is used when an author wants to give other people the right to share and build upon a work that they have created. CC provides an author flexibility and protects the people who use or redistribute an author's work from concerns of copyright infringement as long as they abide by the conditions that are specified in the license by which the author distributes the work. There are several types of Creative Commons licenses; the licenses differ by several combinations that condition the terms of distribution. They were released on December 16, 2002 by Creative Commons, a U. S. non-profit corporation founded in 2001. There have been five versions of the suite of licenses, numbered 1.0 through 4.0. Released in December 2018, the 4.0 license suite is the most current. In October 2014, the Open Knowledge Foundation approved the Creative Commons CC BY, CC BY-SA and CC0 licenses as conformant with the "Open Definition" for content and data.

Work licensed under a Creative Commons license is governed by applicable copyright law. This allows Creative Commons licenses to be applied to all work falling under copyright, including: books, movies, articles, photographs and websites. While Software is governed by copyright law and CC licenses are applicable, the Creative Commons recommends Free and open-source software software licenses instead of Creative Commons licenses. Outside the FOSS licensing use case for software there are several usage examples to utilize CC licenses to specify a "Freeware" license model; the Free Software Foundation recommends the CC0 as the preferred method of releasing software into the public domain. However, application of a Creative Commons license may not modify the rights allowed by fair use or fair dealing or exert restrictions which violate copyright exceptions. Furthermore, Creative Commons licenses are non-revocable. Any work or copies of the work obtained under a Creative Commons license may continue to be used under that license.

In the case of works protected by multiple Creative Commons licenses, the user may choose either. The CC licenses all grant the "baseline rights", such as the right to distribute the copyrighted work worldwide, for non-commercial purposes and without modification; the details of each of these licenses depend on the version, comprises a selection out of four conditions: The last two clauses are not free content licenses, according to definitions such as DFSG or the Free Software Foundation's standards, cannot be used in contexts that require these freedoms, such as Wikipedia. For software, Creative Commons includes three free licenses created by other institutions: the BSD License, the GNU LGPL, the GNU GPL. Mixing and matching these conditions produces sixteen possible combinations, of which eleven are valid Creative Commons licenses and five are not. Of the five invalid combinations, four include both the "nd" and "sa" clauses, which are mutually exclusive. Of the eleven valid combinations, the five that lack the "by" clause have been retired because 98% of licensors requested attribution, though they do remain available for reference on the website.

This leaves six used licenses + the CC0 public domain waiver: For example, the Creative Commons Attribution license allows one to share and remix for commercial use, so long as attribution is given. The original non-localized Creative Commons licenses were written with the U. S. legal system in mind. To address this issue, Creative Commons asked its affiliates to translate the various licenses to reflect local laws in a process called "porting." As of July 2011, Creative Commons licenses have been ported to over 50 jurisdictions worldwide. The latest version 4.0 of the Creative Commons licenses, released on November 25, 2013, are generic licenses that are applicable to most jurisdictions and do not require ports. No new ports have been implemented in version 4.0 of the license. Version 4.0 instead acts as a single global license. Since 2004, all current licenses other than the CC0 variant require attribution of the original author, as signified by the BY component; the attribution must be given to "the best of ability using the information available"..

Creative Commons suggests the mnemonic "TASL:" title -- author -- source -- licence. This implies the following: Include any copyright notices. If the work itself contains any copyright notices placed there by the copyright holder, those notices must be left intact, or reproduced in a way, reasonable to the medium in which the work is being re-published. Cite the author's name, screen name, or user ID, etc. If the work is being published on the Internet, it is nice to link that name to the person's profile page, if such a page exists. Cite the work's title or name, if such a thing exists. If the work is being published on the Internet, it is nice to link the name or title directly to the original work. Cite the specific CC license the work is under. If the work is being published on the Internet, it is nice if the license citation links to the license on the CC website. Mention if the work is a derivative work or adaptation. In addition to the above, one needs to identify that their work is a derivative w

Arvid Gerhard Damm

Arvid Gerhard Damm was a Swedish engineer and inventor. He designed a number of cipher machines, was one of the early inventors of the wired rotor principle for machine encipherment, his company, AB Cryptograph, was a predecessor of Crypto AG. Damm was a textile engineer, worked as an engineering manager in a textile factory in Finland. At this time, he faked a marriage to a Hungarian woman in a sham ceremony conducted by one of Damm's friends posing as a clergyman. After having found a new romantic interest, Damm attempted to "divorce" her, accompanied by false allegations that she was a spy, was embarrassed when his duplicity emerged during the case, revealed by business partner Olof Gyldén. Damm filed for a patent on a rotor machine on 10 October 1919, three days after Hugo Koch filed a patent for a similar invention in the Netherlands. A company, Aktiebolaget Cryptograph, was founded around 19151 to develop Damm's inventions. In 1925, engineer Boris Hagelin was placed in charge of the management of the company and the development of its products, having joined AB Cryptograph in 1922.

Damm died in early 1927. Damm's machines included the "Mecano Cryptographer Model A-1" model and its interoperable portable counterpart, Model A-2; the A-1 was fitted with a keyboard, printed the plaintext together with two copies of the plaintext onto tape. The machine used a chain of links; some of the links moved a 25-disk "key body" forward, some back. Another model, the A-21, was described by Hagelin as Damm's "first fundamentally sound machine"; the A-21 consisted of a cylinder with 26 mixed alphabet strips around it. Another strip, bearing the normal A–Z alphabet was nearby, could take one of two positions, dependent on the movement of chain similar to the A-1. In operation, the cylinder rotated one step, as did the chain, controlling the position of the reference alphabet. To encipher or decipher, a letter could be read off from the reference alphabet to a cylinder alphabet using a slit at the top of the machine; this model was available in a larger "office" model equipped with a keyboard.

A machine was the B-1, used by Sweden's telegraph service. The B-1 proved to be unreliable in operation. Hagelin gives the year as 1915, while Kahn has it as 1916; the following patents were issued to Damm in the United States: U. S. Patent 1,233,035 — "Apparatus for Producing a Series of Signs", filed 21 July 1915, patented 10 July, 1917 U. S. Patent 1,484,477 — "Apparatus for Ciphering and Deciphering Code Expressions", filed 25 March, 1922, patented 19 February, 1924. U. S. Patent 1,502,376 — "Production of Ciphers", filed 2 April, 1920, patented 22 July, 1924.. U. S. Patent 1,540,107 — "Apparatus for the Production of Cipher Documents Especially For Telegraphic Dispatch", filed 1 March, 1922, patented 2 June, 1925. U. S. Patent 1,644,239 — "Apparatus for Producing a Series of Signs", filed 25 September, 1924, patented 4 October, 1927. Filed in Sweden 28 September, 1923. U. S. Patent 1,663,624 — "Electric Apparatus", filed 31 August, 1925, patented 27 March, 1928. Boris C. W. Hagelin, The Story of the Hagelin Cryptos, Cryptologia, 18, July 1994, pp 204–242.
