By now, you probably know that the Creative Commons is a free, open-source license that gives you the ability to share, remix, and make modifications to your content.
That means that you’re free to make your own Minecraft creations, but you’re also not allowed to sell or use your creations in any way without permission from the creator.
To put this in a nutshell, Creative Commons gives you permission to make whatever kind of things you want, and you’re not allowed, even for commercial use, to make any modifications to that content without permission.

But if you’ve ever wanted to make something that’s more than a basic game or simple decoration, you’re going to want to read on.
If you’re new to Creative Commons, the process is straightforward.
First, you download the source code, which is then licensed under the Creative Common Attribution license.
Then, you use that code to make a derivative work of it, which means that if you change the basic game mechanics, add new items, or add new music, you can then license those changes and add them to your work under the same license.
This means that a piece of music, for example, can be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license if you’d like to make the track play in a game.
(You can also license a remix or re-imagining of a track as a work under a different Creative Commons CC license if it’s in the public domain.)
If you want to make things that are actually functional, you have to license them under another Creative Commons License, which allows you to make modifications.
That’s where Minecraft comes in.
You can license Minecraft to make anything that’s related to building, or any other activity that requires a lot of computer processing power, like creating a structure or animating a character.
It’s really just a matter of adding the Creative Attribution license to your original content and then copying the license and making modifications under the license.
As long as you’re doing it under a license that’s compatible with the license you’re using, you shouldn’t have any issues.
And if you have any questions about licensing Creative Commons content, you should ask your licensor.
(Creative Commons licenses are typically posted in the Creative Works section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.)
