Work published under the open access model carry a copyright notice, such as Creative Commons. All CC licences include the condition of attribution which protects an author’s moral rights in their work. Different CC licence types specify how content may be reused e.g. adapting content for non-commercial purposes only.
The application of a CC licence removes the need to ask for permission to use an article, while protecting the author’s copyright. Users must respect the terms of the licence or they will infringe the terms of the license .
