I wrote a poem, called My Favorite Toy, and assigned the CC license Attribution NonCommercial (cc-by-nc) to it. If you translate my English poem into Chinese, and post the poem on a site which displays poetry about toys, you can do this without paying any money to me, or getting permission from me. You must attribute the original poem. Go to the source and see how I display my name with my work, and use that to attribute the poem. The poem is displayed under my user name for the site, rscudder. Post the poem on your poetry site, and at the end of the poem put my user name. To show that your use is legal, display the CC license I chose next to my name.
This would look like this:
My Favorite Toy, by rscudder cc
If there was such a poem, and I had published it on a blog with the CC license Attribution NonCommercial, you could also put a link to the site.
There is an icon created by Creative Commons which you can put by my name, which means attribution, noncommercial use. That symbol can go next to the poem, along with the name of the license, and I should put cc next to that, so you could go and read the terms of the license.
This is the most accommodating of Creative Commons licenses for non-commercial use. The next licenses we list allow fewer rights to people who would like to use a work for non-commercial purposes.
