    Do hubs have creative common license?

      If I understand your question correctly, no the hubs are not creative commons works. The hubs are not to be copied and shared in any way.

        Barbara, given that the admin of this site just finished designing and testing social media buttons, for the express purpose of sharing our Hubs, I don't agree with this one statement of yours.

        Arthur, the FAQ and Learning Center both talk about Creative Commons and how authors can use those designations on the site. … -Your-Hubs

          Maybe I better study more what a Creative Commons License covers. If they can freely use my photos anywhere, I'm not sure I want to share them here.

          I don't mind social sites to share my links, but I don't want anyone to use them on their websites without permission.

            A Creative Commons license is something that your would need to explicitly designate for your content. A Hub would only have Creative Commons licensing if the author chooses to do so.

            Here is a bit more information about Creative Commons.

          What exactly are you disagreeing with?

          The help page may link to it but the lowest CC that exists (as far as I can see) allows people to use your entire hub so long as they attribute it to you. 

          Because social media is to spread a link and short teaser.  It grants no license to use my hubs outside of short excerpts covered by normal fair use.  CC does not offer a license for "all rights reserved" and so does not apply. Hub pages does not allow non-exclusive material.

          I think Barbara was 100% correct. What am I missing?

          There is a big difference between sharing a link and copying the content.

      No, the writer owns the copyright and you may not copy them without permission.   

      You can choose to make your Hubs creative commons licensed if you wish.
