Creative Commons licenses are made to help you determine if and how a work can be used for your own needs. It is easy to share CC licensed works with the proper attribution, but knowing your options become trickier when you want to share works you have combined or modified.
If you decide to modify or combine multiple CC licensed works into a separate new work, you are either creating a collection or a remix (also know as a adapted or derivative work). Collections and remixes are distinct from each other and have unique requirements to ensure your use is legal. On this page, both methods are explained and license considerations are described.
