The free culture movement is a social movement that promotes the freedom to distribute and modify creative works in the form offree content[1][2] by using the Internet and other forms of media.

The movement objects to overly-restrictive copyright laws. Many members of the movement argue that such laws hinder creativity. They call this system “permission culture“.[3]

Creative Commons is a well-known website which was started by Lawrence Lessig. It lists licenses that permit sharing under various conditions, and also offers an online search of various creative-commons-licensed productions.
