The 5Rs of Open Content

The terms " open content" and "open educational resources" describe any copyrightable work (traditionally excluding software, which is described by other terms like "open source") that is licensed in a manner that provides users with free and perpetual permission to engage in the 5R activities:

Retain

The right to make, own, and control copies of the content (e.g., download, duplicate, store, and manage).

Reuse

The right to use the content in a wide range of ways (e.g., in a class, in a study group, on a website, in a video).

Revise

The right to adapt, adjust, modify, or alter the content itself (e.g., translate the content into another language).

Remix

The right to combine the original or revised content with other open content to create something new (e.g., incorporate the content into a mashup).

Redistribute

The right to share copies of the original content, your revisions, or your remixes with others (e.g., give a copy of the content to a friend).

Creative commons licensing allows authors to create, remix and redistribute using the permissions and terms of their choosing.
