People who license their work using CC give their creativity to the community.

Those who leverage that content give respect to its creator.

Remixers give a different perspective to an original work.

Teachers give quality resources to their students.

Scientists give ideas to each other.



And people using CC to do creative work give money to Adobe.

@MrRaptor no! they use :inkscape: Inkscape and :gimp: GIMP and Darktable and Kdenlive and Blender and UbuntuStudio


@luka @MrRaptor Strangely, Adobe's primary suite is called "Creative Cloud" and gets abbreviated as CC, hence [probably] the confusion.

It's really annoying, especially since Creative Commons predates the Adobe Creative Cloud. You'd think Adobe would not clobber that namespace, to avoid confusion. Unless they saw some benefit to enabling the confusion, like when someone does a search for "CC art" or "CC music" or whatever, and gets a bunch of Adobe ads in response...


@klaatu @luka
Yeah, that was the joke, not confusion in fact.
But even if I understood the meaning of the toot, I have to admit that "Creative Cloud" came first in my mind, before "Creative Commons".
