Straight Razor Place Library:Copyrights


Readers / Users

Unless otherwise stated in individual pages (we do have special permission to reproduce some copyrighted materials here), contents of this Library are available under the Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa) licence.

In short, this means you are free:

  • to Share — to copy, distribute, display, and perform the work
  • to Remix — to make derivative works

Under the following conditions:

By.png Attribution: You must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor (see citation method below)

Nc.png Noncommercial: You may not use this work for commercial purposes.

Sa.png Share Alike: If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under a license identical to this one.

  • For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page.
  • Any of the above conditions can be waived if you get permission from the copyright holder.
  • Apart from the remix rights granted under this license, nothing in this license impairs or restricts the author's moral rights.
  • This is a human-readable summary of the Legal Code (the full license).

Citation method

  • Use the method suggested by Wikipedia[1].
  • If an article is explicitly signed by authors, you shall also cite the authors.

Special rights granted to PediaPress

On 09 July 2009 we installed the collection extension by You can order printed "books" from Pediapress.

Pediapress is authorized to sell books generated from this Library under the following conditions:

  • Pediapress may copy, distribute and sell wiki-books made from the Library.
  • Pediapress may not alter, transform, or build upon the contents of these wiki-books.
  • Pediapress must include the original license in the wiki-books, i.e. Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa) by default. Some pages may include manually inserted copyright statements. It is the Library user's (and not Pediapress') responsibility to insure that none of these are violated.

Explanation: Pediapress will make some money with these books, which we consider perfectly acceptable since we get the code in exchange and since it donates 10% to Wikipedia. However, we would like to retain our copyright scheme in the resulting wiki books. It is more restrictive than Wikipedia's, e.g. contents must be attributed and no money can made from it unless we grant a waiver like this one. Copyright inclusion is by the way automatically done by the mw-render engine.


You can sign your contributions (see the editing rules). Ideally, we would like the Wiki to insert author names automatically, but for now - if you wish to be known as author of an article - you have to insert your name (and affiliation) manually on top of your article or section.

See also our Privacy policy which is not the same as on Wikipedia (e.g. we require authors to have a login).
