Creative commons licenses are central to the use of open educational resources.  They tell you what you can and cannot do regarding material.

While searching through OER and OA materials, keep in mind that there are different types of Creative Commons Licenses. Some will give you access to reuse and modify materials as you see fit and other licenses may not.
