A note about the current beta version

The licence below applies to the beta version of GlyphWiki. At present we are planning to adopt this licence for the definitive version as well, but be aware that changes in policy may occur at some point.

Data and article usage licence

The glyphs registered at the GlyphWiki, as well as the articles, can be freely used by anyone. Reuse of this data, such as reproduction or modification of the glyps, is permitted. The are no specific restrictions with regards to displaying the author's name. Reuse of GlyphWiki data as the basis for a new font, or direct usage of fonts and glyphs copied from GlyphWiki in published work is allowed. GlyphWiki does not hold copyright on any citations used throughout GlyphWiki articles. Please consult their respective licences when reusing such content.

A word of caution

In order to guarantee the above licence, contributors transfer copyright on contributed articles to GlyphWiki (its operator, User:kamichi). By submitting articles the contributor consents to any form of modification or usage, and agrees to refrain from claiming copyright or excersising any author's rights over the submitted articles after submission.

The licence for articles on GlyphWiki differs from the WikiPedia licence, hence it is not possible to copy articles from WikiPedia over to GlyphWiki so please refrain from doing so. Thank you for you cooperation.
