What is “share alike?”

Within the context of the Creative Commons, “share alike” is one of the components used by the six creative commons licenses. With “share alike,” the author is allowing others to create, use, and distribute derivative works as long as they do so under a license which is identical to the license of the protected work originally used in creating the derivative work.
