Creative Commons licences

Creative Commons Attribution

Most of our text features have a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 licence (CC BY 4.0), which means that the text can be adapted and republished without asking us for permission. It’s a licence that makes it easy for someone to put an article on their own website, to translate it into another language, and to excerpt or abridge the text (for example, to fit an available print space). If you do edit the text, then you must acknowledge this on the republished article.

Creative Commons Attribution No-derivatives

Some of our features have a Creative Commons Attribution No-derivatives 4.0 licence (CC BY-ND 4.0). This means that you need to get our permission to republish an edited or changed version of the text. If you would like to republish an adapted version, please contact us.

Commercial use

We encourage magazines, newspapers and websites to take our content and reuse it. And we are happy for others to make a profit from our features, through advertising or subscriptions.


Most of the images on our site are copyright of the photographer or illustrator who created them and are not available under Creative Commons. Often, you are permitted to use the art alongside the full republished article. You will find the name of the creator and the copyright and licence information below each image.

If you’d like to use any of the images on our site, contact us.


Our films often include copyrighted music so aren’t available under Creative Commons. All films are available on our Vimeo channel and can be freely embedded on other websites. If you would like to use one of our films for additional media usage (such as broadcast or theatrical), contact us.
