Copyright/copyleft Logo

The license Wikiversity uses grants free access to our content in the same sense as free software is licensed freely. This principle is known as copyleft. That is to say, Wikiversity content can be copied, modified, and redistributed, either commercially or noncommercially, so long as the new version grants the same freedoms to others and acknowledges the authors of the Wikiversity content used (a direct link back to the article satisfies our author credit requirement). Wikiversity learning resources therefore will remain free forever and can be used by anybody subject to certain restrictions, most of which serve to ensure that freedom.

To fulfill the above goals, the text contained in Wikiversity is licensed to the public under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License and GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL). Please see Terms of Use.

For material whose copyright is in question see Wikiversity:Copyright issues. This also includes information on how to deal with such material.

Copyright and Media Uploads[edit]

According to Foundation policy, uploads are required to have a license template and source. To add this information after upload, please edit the image description page directly (click the edit this page tab); uploading a new version of the media will not update the license template, nor the source information.
