Terms of use for Mini treasures wiki (=MTW)

 

The Mini treasures wiki's terms are based on Terms of Use of Wikipedia. http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Terms_of_Use. Reason for that is that Mini treasures wiki aims to be the Wikipedia for issues related to miniatures.

 



 

Information for text contributors to Mini treasures wiki

To grow the commons of free knowledge about dollhouse miniatures and related issues and free culture among miniaturists, all users contributing to MTW are required to grant broad permissions to the general public to re-distribute and re-use their contributions freely, as long as the use is attributed and the same freedom to re-use and re-distribute applies to any derivative works. Therefore, for any text you hold the copyright to, by submitting it, you agree to license it under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License 3.0 (Unported). For compatibility reasons, you are also required to license it under the GNU Free Documentation License (unversioned, with no invariant sections, front-cover texts, or back-cover texts). Re-users can choose the license(s) they wish to comply with.

 

Please note that these licenses do allow commercial uses of your contributions, as long as such uses are compliant with the terms.

As an author, you agree to be attributed in any of the following fashions:

a) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the article or articles you contributed to,

b) through a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website, or

c) through a list of all authors. (Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.)

 

Importing text:

If you want to import text that you have found elsewhere or that you have co-authored with others, you can only do so if it is available under terms that are compatible with the CC-BY-SA license. You do not need to ensure or guarantee that the imported text is available under the GNU Free Documentation License. Furthermore, please note that you cannot import information which is available only under the GFDL. In other words, you may only import text that is

(a) single-licensed under terms compatible with the CC-BY-SA license or

(b) dual-licensed with the GFDL and another license with terms compatible with the CC-BY-SA license

 

If you import text under a compatible license which requires attribution, you must, in a reasonable fashion, credit the author(s). Where such credit is commonly given through page histories, it is sufficient to give attribution in the edit summary, which is recorded in the page history, when importing the text. Regardless of the license, the text you import may be rejected if the required attribution is deemed too intrusive.

 

Information for non-text media contributors

As default non-text media on MTW can be reused inside wiki but no where else. People can however ask a permission from you to use it elsewhere and you can give CC license to your work also while you add it to MTW. This kind of media can however be used as a screenshot from MTW as far as there is a link to the page and it is clearly stated from where the screenshot is taken.

 

Information for re-users

You can re-use content from MTW freely, with the exception of content that is used under "fair use" exemptions, or similar exemptions of copyright law. Please follow the guidelines below:

 

Re-use of text:

 

Attribution:

To re-distribute a text page in any form, provide credit to the authors either by including

a) a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to the page or pages you are re-using,

b) a hyperlink (where possible) or URL to an alternative, stable online copy which is freely accessible, which conforms with the license, and which provides credit to the authors in a manner equivalent to the credit given on this website, or

c) a list of all authors. (Any list of authors may be filtered to exclude very small or irrelevant contributions.)

 

This applies to text developed by the MTW community. Text from external sources may attach additional attribution requirements to the work, which we will strive to indicate clearly to you. For example, a page may have a banner or other notation indicating that some or all of its content was originally published somewhere else. Where such notations are visible in the page itself, they should generally be preserved by re-users.

 

Copyleft/Share Alike:

If you make modifications or additions to the page you re-use, you must license them under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike License 3.0 or later.

 

Indicate changes:

If you make modifications or additions, you must indicate in a reasonable fashion that the original work has been modified. If you are re-using the page in a wiki, for example, indicating this in the page history is sufficient.

 

Licensing notice:

Each copy or modified version that you distribute must include a licensing notice stating that the work is released under CC-BY-SA and either

a) a hyperlink or URL to the text of the license or

b) a copy of the license. For this purpose, a suitable URL is: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

 

For further information, please refer to the legal code of the CC-BY-SA License.

 

Re-use of non-text media:

If you want to re-use non-text media it is best to ask a permission from the originator. You will find out the originator from the page history. You can however take screenshots from the wiki as long as you give the credit to MTW (see the a-b-c below).
