Creative Commons Markdown
On November 25th, 2013, Creative Commons announced their next generation licenses: Creative Commons 4.0. By default, these are available as HTML or plaintext. This project adds Markdown-formatted licenses to that list, while aiming for best compatibility on GitHub.
There's a plethora of Markdown file extensions, but I have decided to go with
markdown. Read why:
"We no longer live in a 8.3 world, so we should be using the most descriptive file extensions. It’s sad that all our operating systems rely on this stupid convention instead of the better creator code or a metadata model, but great that they now support longer file extensions."

"…the only file extension I would endorse is “.markdown”, for the same reason offered by Hilton Lipschitz"
– John Gruber, creator of Markdown (via)
There are other ways to get the licenses than downloading the latest release in your browser:
# Use git $ git clone https://github.com/idleberg/Creative-Commons-Markdown cc-md # Yarn $ yarn add cc-md # npm $ npm install cc-md
If you notice any mistakes in content or formatting, please send a pull request with your correction.
