To my understanding;

Fair use is a concept that recognizes that certain uses of copyright-protected works do not require permission from the copyright holder or its agent.

Creative commons is a non-profit organization that provides free licenses and other legal tools to mark creative work with the freedom the creator wants it to have.

So then what is the difference between "fair use" and having a "creative common license"? Can someone give me insight on this?

Yes, by "fair use' what they mean is that a person can use of another's work without approval. But there is a certain criteria you need to meet - such as it has to be either a criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching or research in order to be allowed to use someone else's work.

Someone told that one way to safeguard myself from copyright infringement is "fair use". What does this mean? Any idea anyone?
