Licensing Update

From eLinux.org
Jump to: navigation, search

As of May 1, 2012 the elinux.org wiki has moved to a dual-licensing format identical to that used by Wikimedia. For details of the Wikimedia licensing format, see Wikimedia Licensing Update.

For the purposes of elinux.org, content will be license as follows:

  1. all content currently distributed under the GNU Free Documentation License (with “later version” clause) additionally available under CC-BY-SA 3.0, as explicitly allowed through the latest version of the GFDL;
  2. to require continued dual-licensing of new community edits in this manner, but allow CC-BY-SA-only content from third parties (However, GFDL-only content from third parties is no longer allowed);
  3. to inform re-users that content which includes imported CC-BY-SA-only information cannot be used under the GFDL.

As is consistent with established policy and practice, and as is consistent with the CC-BY-SA license model, authors and editors will also be required to consent to being credited by re-users; at minimum, this will be done through a hyperlink or URL to the article they are contributing to.
