General features of Creative Commons licensing and problems for its adaptation to the Lithuanian jurisdiction are identified and studied. Conclusions are drawn that comprehensive reform of the current copyright and related rights regime is needed in order to fully accommodate Creative Commons and other alternative arrangements in Lithuanian and European law.
