Creative Commons license This video explains how Creative Commons licenses can be used in conjunction with commercial licensing arrangements. Creative Commons licenses are explained in many languages and used around the world, such as pictured here in Cambodia. A Creative Commons (CC) 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 people the right to share, use and build upon a work that they have created. CC provides an author flexibility (for example, they might choose to allow only non-commercial uses of their own work) and protects the people who use or redistribute an author's work, so they don’t have to worry about copyright infringement, as long as they abide by the conditions that are specified in the license by which the author distributes the work.

But whatever the reason, we have very strong ideas about what we want and don’t want out of a wifi café: Comfy seatsAmazing wifiLovely staffPlug pointsAwesome air conditioningA huge range of drinksGreat coffee – if it’s a coffee placeFood – just in case we get peckishOutside space – preferably with plug points there tooOpen late – until at least 8pmNon-distracting music (or at the very least, Adele covers that aren’t sung by screaming cats)
