Creative Commons (CC) is a non-profit organization devoted to expanding the range of creative works available for others to build upon and share, specifically works made available online. They enable copyright owners to issue free standardized licenses in favor of anyone who wants to use their work, imposing limitations as to what the latter can do with the work depending on the license chosen.
This study discusses that there is no need to amend the Intellectual property Code for the legal recognition and enforcement of CC licenses. CC licenses are upheld in view of the principle of autonomy of contracts, and their enforceability are guaranteed in view of the Rules on Electronic Evidence, which now treats electronic documents as co-equal with written agreements.
