How to Solve Creativecommons Down or Outage Issues:

We have tried pinging using our servers in diverse locations and the website returned the above results.

If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or website maintenance is in progress.

If the site is UP for us but you however cannot access it, try one of our following solutions:

1. It might be Browser Related:

To solve Browser related issues that might make the site/server down for you, do a full Browser refresh of this site. You can do this by holding down CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your browser.

This trick works perfectly on Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Opera, Safari and whatever default browser comes with your Windows nowadays lol.

2. Clear Your Cookies and Cache.

The contents of all modern sites and apps today are usually cached. This means a copy is stored in your browser as long as you have visited that page before. This is to make it easier to access when next you visit that page. This might be a problem especially if the page was down last time you checked.

You might need to clear that out of your browser memory for the site to load properly.

3. Fix DNS Problems

Domain Name System (DNS) is what allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words ( e.g .com, .us) in order to be remembered easily. This is usually provided by your Internet Service Provider.

To fix this, clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has.

@frenchpressme My daughter sited her sources for a school presentation. So proud. Tried to get her to find @creativecommons photos but was not sure how to narrow that search easiely in a browser.

@danielsaraga @fredericschutz @heluc dear @creativecommons, I wonder if a new category: NCME for "not for commercial use but media and educational use allowed " would be useful. I feel that many people object to see their work used for advertisement purposes, but not for educational or media use. #thoughtfor2020

@rosiecocopops @OpenGLAM @creativecommons “Creative Commons licenses are not tools that should be used to limit the possibility of discovery, sharing, and re-use of the public domain. Cultural heritage institutions should embrace open access policies as part of their institutional missions to grant access to culture..”

@brettglass How about "None?" The purpose of Google-funded @CreativeCommons is not actually to encourage sharing, but rather to persuade creators to give up the rights to their work so corporations can benefit. #Copyright

@AgnisStelingis @OzBigBen @albn @EF_company @Sketchfab @creativecommons @unilibrary @OzBigBen my team mate was trying to cover it correctly as possible. I any case we are sorry if these are not the right credits.

@yesbutmarshall Reminder that @trent_reznor released Ghosts I-IV under a @creativecommons license to encourage exactly this type of sampling/adaptation, and then made sure not to stand in the way when "Old Town Road" went huge and needed to clear the sample commercially. Be like Trent.

@10Ricthey @irina_mcgrath @michelleshory @JCPSAsstSuptASP @creativecommons @ClassHook @PearDeck @Mentimeter @emilyfranESL @MrsGill_ @ValentinaESL @TanELLclassroom @JCPSlatino @NewcomerAcademy If I disagree about his social media is not correct a lot of flies that come out they fabricate a stretch it so you never want to teach your kids something is not real or give them the girls in their life that they can accomplish

@OzBigBen @AgnisStelingis @albn @EF_company @Sketchfab @creativecommons @unilibrary Getting the handle wrong was understandable. Your thoughts on the commercial use? It’s not smart marketing. Simply taking from content creators you missed the chance to promote your products to people who might use them while seeking permission.

@fredericschutz @heluc @danielsaraga @SKWJ_ASJS @tagesanzeiger @NZZWissen @higgsmag @heidi_news @letemps @Wochenzeitung @BeobachterRat @creativecommons And unfortunately, this is often how media work ("let's just use the image, in the unlikely event that someone complains, we'll pay a fee"). Managed to avoid it when working as a journalist, but got some of my own pictures used this way...

@nomnomdeplume @LISprochat @creativecommons Q1: Once faculty was upset we didn't have a volume she needed. I found it for her via #OpenAcess but when I asked a cataloger to add the link to our holding for the bib, I learned our policy is not to include OA links in case they change and leave our records with broken links.

@heluc @danielsaraga @SKWJ_ASJS @tagesanzeiger @NZZWissen @higgsmag @heidi_news @letemps @Wochenzeitung @BeobachterRat Very cool! Actually by *free* to use by *ANYONE* 🥳 (as long as it's not for commercial use, i.e. some rights reserved) via @creativecommons

@collectionsODS This is the best deal I can give you. Not only do you get access to EVERYTHING I have done and will do, but, will @creativecommons license them Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs CC BY-NC-ND that.

@DonGorges @cgreen @UNESCO @creativecommons Hi Cable - I've seen many tweets about this but have not been able to find more information about the adopted @UNESCO #OER Recommendation. I'm hoping you have and can share a link which offers details - thanks

@ignasi @creativecommons Article 14 of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market "...when the term of protection of a work of visual art has expired, any material resulting from an act of reproduction of that work is not subject to copyright or related rights..."

@paul_keller sometimes there is a need to state the obvious again & again: The @creativecommons licenses are not intended to put restrictions on works in the #publicdomain (such as the recently released 3D model of the Nefertiti Bust): /cc: @CosmoWenman @hparzinger

@fredericschutz @heluc @danielsaraga @SKWJ_ASJS @tagesanzeiger @NZZWissen @higgsmag @heidi_news @letemps @Wochenzeitung @BeobachterRat @creativecommons So it is *not* free to use... and it is a pity ;( And, yes, as far as I know, use by a media (whether involving a subscription or advertising) is generally considered as commercial use.

@ignasi @Paula_C_Vega @creativecommons I would like to remark that currently copyright is transferred to publishers and when it is not transferred authors sign exclusive publishing licenses that in fact don't let them exercise their rights #EmpowOA

@ignasi @Paula_C_Vega @creativecommons There is always a fear of misuse when sharing any work. But you can always report those misuses and even bring cases to court. There have been several cases in court due to an infrigement of the license mainly for commercial uses but also for not attributing the work #EmpowOA

@ABC4Devon @MissKrisE87 @suraechinn @abc4utah @creativecommons If it’s all corn mealy... oof, but sounds like it’s cooked down to be more of a pudding/custard. However, I could see that consistency being a turnoff for some too!

@JohnStewartPhD [email protected]: In Japan, @creativecommons is quite famous but is not used as frequently in education. That's starting to change, but is still a work in progress. #OISummit #OLCLive #OLCAccelerate

@danielsaraga @fredericschutz @heluc @SKWJ_ASJS @tagesanzeiger @NZZWissen @higgsmag @heidi_news @letemps @Wochenzeitung @BeobachterRat @creativecommons It's free to use for the media AND for NC use. We state in several documents ("made available to the public and the media".) At least we never heard from a media not using it because of the NC
