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

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.

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

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.
