A: An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. There is a creative commons license that publishers follow in using certain publicly posted images, if that's the license you are talking about. As for the arbitration provision, it's possible that arbitration could be a forum for handling disputes?? This may be something that attorneys who deal with intellectual property (namely copyright matters) could offer more insight on. Good luck

A: When a person has a Creative Commons license, it means they have chosen to share their work with certain permissions for others to use it. This license allows others to use, distribute, and sometimes modify the work, depending on the specific terms of the license. Creative Commons licenses come in various types, each specifying different levels of freedom and restrictions, such as requiring attribution or prohibiting commercial use.

On the other hand, an arbitration license indicates that any disputes related to the person's work will be resolved through arbitration rather than through the court system. Arbitration is a private form of dispute resolution where an independent third party, called an arbitrator, makes a binding decision. This process is often quicker and less formal than going to court.

Together, having these licenses means the person is open to sharing their work under specific conditions and prefers to handle disputes through arbitration. This can make their work more accessible while providing a streamlined way to resolve any potential legal issues that arise.
