Comment
 
 
 
This license can be used as a free documentation license. It is a
 
copyleft free documentation license provided the copyright holder does
 
not exercise any of the “LICENSE OPTIONS” listed in Section VI of the
 
license. But if either of the options is invoked, the license becomes
 
nonfree. In any case, it is incompatible with the GNU FDL.
 
 
 
This creates a practical pitfall in using or recommending this
 
license: if you recommend “Use the Open Publication License, Version
 
1.0 but don't enable the options”, it would be easy for the second
 
half of that recommendation to get forgotten; someone might use the
 
license with the options, making a manual nonfree, and yet think he or
 
she is following your advice.
 
 
 
Likewise, if you use this license without either of the options to
 
make your manual free, someone else might decide to imitate you, then
 
change his or her mind about the options thinking that that is just a
 
detail; the result would be that his or her manual is nonfree.
 
 
 
Thus, while manuals published under this license do qualify as free
 
documentation if neither license option was used, it is better to use
 
the GNU Free Documentation License and avoid the risk of leading
 
someone else astray.
 
 
 
Please note that this license is not the same as the Open Content
 
License. These two licenses are frequently confused, as the Open
 
Content License is often referred to as the “OPL”. For clarity, it is
 
better not to use the abbreviation “OPL” for either license. It is
 
worth spelling their names in full to make sure people understand what
 
you say.

Open Publication License
 
v1.0, 8 June 1999
 
 
 
 
 
I. REQUIREMENTS ON BOTH UNMODIFIED AND MODIFIED VERSIONS
 
 
 
The Open Publication works may be reproduced and distributed in whole
 
or in part, in any medium physical or electronic, provided that the
 
terms of this license are adhered to, and that this license or an
 
incorporation of it by reference (with any options elected by the
 
author(s) and/or publisher) is displayed in the reproduction.
 
 
 
Proper form for an incorporation by reference is as follows:
 
 
 
Copyright (c) <year> by <author's name or designee>. This material may
 
be distributed only subject to the terms and conditions set forth in
 
the Open Publication License, vX.Y or later (the latest version is
 
presently available at http://www.opencontent.org/openpub/).
 
 
 
The reference must be immediately followed with any options elected by
 
the author(s) and/or publisher of the document (see section VI).
 
 
 
Commercial redistribution of Open Publication-licensed material is
 
permitted.
 
 
 
Any publication in standard (paper) book form shall require the
 
citation of the original publisher and author. The publisher and
 
author's names shall appear on all outer surfaces of the book. On all
 
outer surfaces of the book the original publisher's name shall be as
 
large as the title of the work and cited as possessive with respect to
 
the title.
 
 
 
 
 
II. COPYRIGHT
 
 
 
The copyright to each Open Publication is owned by its author(s) or
 
designee.
 
 
 
 
 
III. SCOPE OF LICENSE
 
 
 
The following license terms apply to all Open Publication works,
 
unless otherwise explicitly stated in the document.
 
 
 
Mere aggregation of Open Publication works or a portion of an Open
 
Publication work with other works or programs on the same media shall
 
not cause this license to apply to those other works. The aggregate
 
work shall contain a notice specifying the inclusion of the Open
 
Publication material and appropriate copyright notice.
 
 
 
SEVERABILITY. If any part of this license is found to be unenforceable
 
in any jurisdiction, the remaining portions of the license remain in
 
force.
 
 
 
NO WARRANTY. Open Publication works are licensed and provided "as is"
 
without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not
 
limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for
 
a particular purpose or a warranty of non-infringement.
 
 
 
 
 
IV. REQUIREMENTS ON MODIFIED WORKS
 
 
 
All modified versions of documents covered by this license, including
 
translations, anthologies, compilations and partial documents, must
 
meet the following requirements:
 
 
 
The modified version must be labeled as such.  The person making the
 
modifications must be identified and the modifications dated.
 
 
 
Acknowledgement of the original author and publisher if applicable
 
must be retained according to normal academic citation practices.
 
   
 
The location of the original unmodified document must be identified.
 
The original author's (or authors') name(s) may not be used to assert
 
or imply endorsement of the resulting document without the original
 
author's (or authors') permission.
 
 
 
 
 
V. GOOD-PRACTICE RECOMMENDATIONS
 
 
 
In addition to the requirements of this license, it is requested from
 
and strongly recommended of redistributors that:
 
 
 
If you are distributing Open Publication works on hardcopy or CD-ROM,
 
you provide email notification to the authors of your intent to
 
redistribute at least thirty days before your manuscript or media
 
freeze, to give the authors time to provide updated documents. This
 
notification should describe modifications, if any, made to the
 
document.
 
 
 
All substantive modifications (including deletions) be either clearly
 
marked up in the document or else described in an attachment to the
 
document.
 
 
 
Finally, while it is not mandatory under this license, it is
 
considered good form to offer a free copy of any hardcopy and CD-ROM
 
expression of an Open Publication-licensed work to its author(s).
 
 
 
 
 
VI. LICENSE OPTIONS
 
 
 
The author(s) and/or publisher of an Open Publication-licensed
 
document may elect certain options by appending language to the
 
reference to or copy of the license. These options are considered part
 
of the license instance and must be included with the license (or its
 
incorporation by reference) in derived works.
 
 
 
A. To prohibit distribution of substantively modified versions without
 
the explicit permission of the author(s). "Substantive modification"
 
is defined as a change to the semantic content of the document, and
 
excludes mere changes in format or typographical corrections.
 
 
 
To accomplish this, add the phrase `Distribution of substantively
 
modified versions of this document is prohibited without the explicit
 
permission of the copyright holder.' to the license reference or copy.
 
 
 
B. To prohibit any publication of this work or derivative works in
 
whole or in part in standard (paper) book form for commercial purposes
 
unless prior permission is obtained from the copyright holder.
 
 
 
To accomplish this, add the phrase 'Distribution of the work or
 
derivative of the work in any standard (paper) book form is prohibited
 
unless prior permission is obtained from the copyright holder.' to the
 
license reference or copy.
 
 
 
 
 
OPEN PUBLICATION POLICY APPENDIX:
 
 
 
(This is not considered part of the license.)
 
 
 
Open Publication works are available in source format via the Open
 
Publication home page at http://works.opencontent.org/.
 
 
 
Open Publication authors who want to include their own license on Open
 
Publication works may do so, as long as their terms are not more
 
restrictive than the Open Publication license.
 
 
 
If you have questions about the Open Publication License, please
 
contact David Wiley, and/or the Open Publication Authors' List at
 
opal@opencontent.org, via email.

To post to the Open Publication Authors' List: Send E-mail to
