Creative Commons licences are arguably the most widely used open licences available for literary and musical works. Through a series of different licences, Creative Commons licences allow content creators to keep or give away a variety of rights under copyright law.

Dr Tobias Schonwetter is a postdoctoral research fellow. Tobias studied and practised law in Germany and San Francisco, USA and holds PhD and LLM (with distinction) degrees from UCT. He specialises in copyright-related issues and is a country lead researcher and one of the Principal Investigators for the African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) project.
