|Copyright and Intellectual Property Considerations|
All materials contributed to metastudio.org must have clearly defined rights and privileges. We have instituted the following guidelines for all materials uploaded onto this site:
If you contribute any software we do encourage our developers to release their tools as free and open source (FOSS) so that others can build upon their work. If you decide to make your source code available for download, we do require that you include some well-defined license so that our users clearly understand how they are allowed to use your source code. The licenses available on gnu.org have been vetted by lawyers and are widely used by other free software developers across the globe. Most of them can be used right out of the box without any legal help. If you have any query please write to us by raising a ticket using "Need Help?" link at the top right of this site.
Seminars and Other Materials
We strongly encourage contributors of online presentations, teaching materials, animations, and other materials to adopt the Creative Commons 3.0 license. This allows others to use your work for non-commercial purposes, but they must acknowledge you as a source and share their derivative works under the same license. Note that this also gives you an opportunity to build upon their work!
We strongly encourage all contributors to adopt these licensing guidelines. If you want to contribute, but for some reason you are unable to agree to these licenses, please contact us, so we can follow up and discuss other options.
