The rapid growth of information and communication technologies in the last twenty years has considerably changed the ways of publishing. The ever growing number of works published and accessed electronically has inevitably led to some necessary modifications in copyright and intellectual property protection. Along with the “all rights reserved” model, i.e. the copyright law, and the “no rights reserved” model, i.e. open access, a new concept has emerged, the one in which an author himself/herself defines the level of protection of his/her work. This model is known as the “some rights reserved” model. The most famous such initiative is the Creative Commons. In this paper we will present the Creative Commons initiative and some examples of good practice of several libraries around the world. We will also critically examine the functionality of such a model, and finally, we will investigate the presence of the Creative Commons in Croatia.
