If you would like to take part in CC and provide your photography under a less restrictive license than "All Rights Reserved", familiarize yourself with Creative Commons, and apply a CC license to you photos, by either changing your default license upload setting or an individual photo’s license under "Owner settings" on any of your photo pages.
