The original non-localized Creative Commons licenses were written with the US legal system in mind, hence the wording of the licenses could be incompatible within different local legislations and render the licenses unenforceable in various jurisdictions. To address this issue, Creative Commons has ported the various licenses to accommodate local copyright and private law. The porting process involves both linguistically translating the licenses and legally adapting them to particular jurisdictions.
As of August 2011, Creative Commons licenses have been ported over 50 different jurisdictions worldwide. No new ports are being started as preparations for version 4.0 of the license suite begin.
