Is MyPE material copyrighted?
Yes. Creative Commons licensing doesn’t replace copyright – which remains undivided with MyPE – but it makes the terms more flexible.
What does the MyPE Creative Commons license allow?
We make MyPE material available under the Creative Commons license “Attribution – NonCommercial – NonDerivative” in order to allow non-commercial entities (bloggers, educators, groups of friends) to use them freely and easily. But important restrictions apply, particularly for corporations.
MyPE’s Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license allows you to display MyPE material under the following conditions:

- NonDerivative (ND): You cannot alter the content/images in any way. This means you cannot edit, remix, cut, shorten, add overlays to them, or, well, alter them in any way.
These conditions can be modified only by explicit permission of the copyright holder (MyPE). The complete text of the license can be seen on the Creative Commons (CC) license.
