Stilly River Sage Copyright and Creative Commons licence (20) RE: Copyright and Creative Commons licence 23 Dec 20

The owner of the copyright can name the rights they want to give or reserve and there is a page for each type of license that the owner should link to. There are also symbols that can be used to help call attention to the license.

If you look at Advanced Search in Google the bottom line is "usage rights" and applies to Creative Commons.

not filtered by license
free to use or share
free to use or share, even commercially
free to use share or modify
free to use, share, or modify, even commercially

Sites with those rights designated should appear at the top of the search results.
