YouTube bets on Creative Commons attribution and non-commercial license

New on YouTube, from now on, users can also license our videos under a single license of the six that Creative Commons has, precisely the license with attribution and for non-commercial purposes. What does this allow in practice? Our videos under CC license together with the rest of the videos under the same license can be used by any user to create derivative works, being able to mix scenes through the YouTube video editor itself. And as a novelty, YouTube has ensured that there is a minimum of videos with which to start, reaching an agreement with C-SPAN and Al Jazeera, initially having 10,000 videos at our disposal with this license. In addition, YouTube has a tool that allows the license change of several videos simultaneously, so that the videos that we have can be transferred to this CC license and those that we upload, if we want, we can also have them under this same license. An interesting move by YouTube, which seems to have chosen this unique Creative Commons license option to avoid confusion on the part of users, although there were already services that allow us to choose any Creative Commons license we want, as is the case with Vimeo.
