CC (Creative Commons) Explained

How to give proper credit where credit is due

If you’re like me, your understanding of technology and its related parts goes only as deep as is necessary to get the job done. Nothing wrong with that, I say, but in the age of digital citizenship, we ought to know more about how to cite the images that bring our words to life.
