Explicit post licensing

“All rights reserved” is not the only option

Today, in conjunction with Creative Commons, we’re happy to announce support for explicit post licensing on Medium.

Ready to license your work?


What licensing options do I have?

Do I have to do anything to ensure I retain the rights to my existing stories?

How do I change the license of an existing story?

What happens if I change the license of a published post from a Creative Commons license to “All rights reserved”?

How do I know what license a story is published under?

Can I license my work with a Creative Commons license if I use an image that is licensed differently?

I have more questions!
