A Creative Commons licence is used when an author wants to give people the right to share, use and build upon a work that they have created.
The licence we use is CC BY-SA (attribution and share-alike), which is the licence used by Wikipedia.
- to Share – to copy, distribute and transmit the material, and
- to Remix – to adapt the material
Under the following conditions:
- Attribution – You must attribute the materials to the Raspberry Pi Foundation (but not in any way that suggests that they endorse you or your use of the materials), as well as including a link to the original resource. You must also indicate if changes were made.
- Share Alike – If you alter, transform, or build upon these materials, you must distribute the resulting materials under the same licence.
We welcome contributions to our documentation, which is hosted on the Raspberry Pi GitHub and enhancements or improvements to our learning resources on the Raspberry Pi Learning GitHub. While observing the contributions policy (given in the CONTRIBUTING.md file in the root of each repository), you are free to fork any repository and create a pull request for your changes to be merged. In all cases the licence must remain in any derivatives of the work, and any contributions are assumed to be licensed under the same licence.
