A wiki wiki web creates the possibility of anonymous joint authorship which may confuse ownership and copyright issues. The main content of this site is the text on the wiki pages that has been written by the LyX community, but there is also uploaded material. This uploaded material is quite varied, including LyX examples, additional layouts, style guides or even special versions of LyX.
The contents of this site are works-in-progress that grow in value as people contribute to them, and as such promote joint authorship and open ownership.
The practical intent is that the content on this site is open, it cannot become non-open, and future readers will be afforded the same rights and opportunities as current readers. See also the GNU free Documentation License and the Open Publication License.
When reading or posting to a wiki, consider the following.
You can use the sections you write verbatim, including anonymous corrections and additions. You can quote, paraphrase and reference other material, consistent with fair use. You should use independent sources to check facts. The open nature of the wiki means that published materials are not verified.
The above is a précis of Ward Cunningham's original.
Files submitted to the wiki for general download are covered by the GPL license in the name of their respective author, unless specified otherwise by the contributing authors.
Please note that authors are free to license their material as they see fit. So if you wish to upload examples under some specific license such as BSD, please do so.
