<pre>
 
This is a free and copyleft license meant for artistic works. It
 
permits commercial distribution, as any free license must. It is a
 
copyleft license because any larger work that includes part of the
 
work you received must be released, as a whole, either under the same
 
license or under a similar license that meets stated criteria. Please
 
don't use it for software or documentation, since it is incompatible
 
with the GNU GPL and with the GNU FDL.

Free Art License 1.3
 
 
 
 
 
[ Copyleft Attitude ]
 
 
 
Free Art License 1.3 (FAL 1.3)
 
 
 
Preamble
 
 
 
The Free Art License grants the right to freely copy, distribute, and
 
transform creative works without infringing the author's rights.
 
 
 
The Free Art License recognizes and protects these rights. Their
 
implementation has been reformulated in order to allow everyone to use
 
creations of the human mind in a creative manner, regardless of their
 
types and ways of expression.
 
 
 
While the public's access to creations of the human mind usually is
 
restricted by the implementation of copyright law, it is favoured by
 
the Free Art License. This license intends to allow the use of a
 
work’s resources; to establish new conditions for creating in order to
 
increase creation opportunities. The Free Art License grants the right
 
to use a work, and acknowledges the right holder’s and the user’s
 
rights and responsibility.
 
 
 
The invention and development of digital technologies, Internet and
 
Free Software have changed creation methods: creations of the human
 
mind can obviously be distributed, exchanged, and transformed. They
 
allow to produce common works to which everyone can contribute to the
 
benefit of all.
 
 
 
The main rationale for this Free Art License is to promote and protect
 
these creations of the human mind according to the principles of
 
copyleft: freedom to use, copy, distribute, transform, and prohibition
 
of exclusive appropriation.
 
 
 
Definitions
 
 
 
“work” either means the initial work, the subsequent works or the
 
common work as defined hereafter:
 
 
 
“common work” means a work composed of the initial work and all
 
subsequent contributions to it (originals and copies). The initial
 
author is the one who, by choosing this license, defines the
 
conditions under which contributions are made.
 
 
 
“Initial work” means the work created by the initiator of the common
 
work (as defined above), the copies of which can be modified by
 
whoever wants to
 
 
 
“Subsequent works” means the contributions made by authors who
 
participate in the evolution of the common work by exercising the
 
rights to reproduce, distribute, and modify that are granted by the
 
license.
 
 
 
“Originals” (sources or resources of the work) means all copies of
 
either the initial work or any subsequent work mentioning a date and
 
used by their author(s) as references for any subsequent updates,
 
interpretations, copies or reproductions.
 
 
 
“Copy” means any reproduction of an original as defined by this
 
license.
 
 
 
1. OBJECT
 
 
 
The aim of this license is to define the conditions under which one
 
can use this work freely.
 
 
 
2. SCOPE
 
 
 
This work is subject to copyright law. Through this license its author
 
specifies the extent to which you can copy, distribute, and modify it.
 
 
 
2.1 FREEDOM TO COPY (OR TO MAKE REPRODUCTIONS)
 
 
 
You have the right to copy this work for yourself, your friends or any
 
other person, whatever the technique used.
 
 
 
2.2 FREEDOM TO DISTRIBUTE, TO PERFORM IN PUBLIC
 
 
 
You have the right to distribute copies of this work; whether modified
 
or not, whatever the medium and the place, with or without any charge,
 
provided that you: attach this license without any modification to the
 
copies of this work or indicate precisely where the license can be
 
found, specify to the recipient the names of the author(s) of the
 
originals, including yours if you have modified the work, specify to
 
the recipient where to access the originals (either initial or
 
subsequent).
 
 
 
The authors of the originals may, if they wish to, give you the right
 
to distribute the originals under the same conditions as the copies.
 
 
 
2.3 FREEDOM TO MODIFY
 
 
 
You have the right to modify copies of the originals (whether initial
 
or subsequent) provided you comply with the following conditions: all
 
conditions in article 2.2 above, if you distribute modified copies;
 
indicate that the work has been modified and, if it is possible, what
 
kind of modifications have been made; distribute the subsequent work
 
under the same license or any compatible license.
 
 
 
The author(s) of the original work may give you the right to modify it
 
under the same conditions as the copies.
 
 
 
3. RELATED RIGHTS
 
 
 
Activities giving rise to author’s rights and related rights shall not
 
challenge the rights granted by this license.
 
 
 
For example, this is the reason why performances must be subject to
 
the same license or a compatible license. Similarly, integrating the
 
work in a database, a compilation or an anthology shall not prevent
 
anyone from using the work under the same conditions as those defined
 
in this license.
 
 
 
4. INCORPORATION OF THE WORK
 
 
 
Incorporating this work into a larger work that is not subject to the
 
Free Art License shall not challenge the rights granted by this
 
license.
 
 
 
If the work can no longer be accessed apart from the larger work in
 
which it is incorporated, then incorporation shall only be allowed
 
under the condition that the larger work is subject either to the Free
 
Art License or a compatible license.
 
 
 
5. COMPATIBILITY
 
 
 
A license is compatible with the Free Art License provided: it gives
 
the right to copy, distribute, and modify copies of the work including
 
for commercial purposes and without any other restrictions than those
 
required by the respect of the other compatibility criteria; it
 
ensures proper attribution of the work to its authors and access to
 
previous versions of the work when possible; it recognizes the Free
 
Art License as compatible (reciprocity); it requires that changes made
 
to the work be subject to the same license or to a license which also
 
meets these compatibility criteria.
 
 
 
6. YOUR INTELLECTUAL RIGHTS
 
 
 
This license does not aim at denying your author's rights in your
 
contribution or any related right. By choosing to contribute to the
 
development of this common work, you only agree to grant others the
 
same rights with regard to your contribution as those you were granted
 
by this license. Conferring these rights does not mean you have to
 
give up your intellectual rights.
 
 
 
7. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
 
 
 
The freedom to use the work as defined by the Free Art License (right
 
to copy, distribute, modify) implies that everyone is responsible for
 
their own actions.
 
 
 
8. DURATION OF THE LICENSE
 
 
 
This license takes effect as of your acceptance of its terms. The act
 
of copying, distributing, or modifying the work constitutes a tacit
 
agreement. This license will remain in effect for as long as the
 
copyright which is attached to the work. If you do not respect the
 
terms of this license, you automatically lose the rights that it
 
confers.
 
 
 
If the legal status or legislation to which you are subject makes it
 
impossible for you to respect the terms of this license, you may not
 
make use of the rights which it confers.
 
 
 
9. VARIOUS VERSIONS OF THE LICENSE
 
 
 
This license may undergo periodic modifications to incorporate
 
improvements by its authors (instigators of the “Copyleft Attitude”
 
movement) by way of new, numbered versions.
 
 
 
You will always have the choice of accepting the terms contained in
 
the version under which the copy of the work was distributed to you,
 
or alternatively, to use the provisions of one of the subsequent
 
versions.
 
 
 
10. SUB-LICENSING
 
 
 
Sub-licenses are not authorized by this license. Any person wishing to
 
make use of the rights that it confers will be directly bound to the
 
authors of the common work.
 
 
 
11. LEGAL FRAMEWORK
 
 
 
This license is written with respect to both French law and the Berne
 
Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.
 
 
 
USER GUIDE

following elements on your work:
 
 
 
  [Name of the author, title, date of the work. When applicable, names
 
  of authors of the common work and, if possible, where to find the
 
  originals].
 
 
 
Copyleft: This is a free work, you can copy, distribute, and modify it
 
under the terms of the Free Art License
 
http://artlibre.org/licence/lal/en/
 
 
 
- Why to use the Free Art License?
 
 
 
  1.To give the greatest number of people access to your work.
 
 
 
  2.To allow it to be distributed freely.
 
 
 
  3.To allow it to evolve by allowing its copy, distribution, and
 
    transformation by others.
 
 
 
  4.So that you benefit from the resources of a work when it is under
 
    the Free Art License: to be able to copy, distribute or transform
 
    it freely.
 
 
 
  5.But also, because the Free Art License offers a legal framework to
 
    disallow any misappropriation. It is forbidden to take hold of
 
    your work and bypass the creative process for one's exclusive
 
    possession.

Any time you want to benefit and make others benefit from the right to
 
copy, distribute and transform creative works without any exclusive
 
appropriation, you should use the Free Art License. You can for
 
example use it for scientific, artistic or educational projects.
 
 
 
- What kinds of works can be subject to the Free Art License?
 
 
 
The Free Art License can be applied to digital as well as physical
 
works.  You can choose to apply the Free Art License on any text,
 
picture, sound, gesture, or whatever sort of stuff on which you have
 
sufficient author's rights.
 
 
 
- Historical background of this license:
 
 
 
It is the result of observing, using and creating digital
 
technologies, free software, the Internet and art. It arose from the
 
“Copyleft Attitude” meetings which took place in Paris in 2000. For
 
the first time, these meetings brought together members of the Free
 
Software community, artists, and members of the art world. The goal
 
was to adapt the principles of Copyleft and free software to all sorts
 
of creations. http://www.artlibre.org

You can make reproductions and distribute this license verbatim
 
(without any changes).
