Cc license

From ilri-comms ilriwikis

At its December 2010 meeting, the ILRI Management Committee agreed on a proposal for the institute to use an open license for its published outputs. In January 2016, an attribution-only licence was adopted, allowing commercial re-use with attribution. This licence applies to the following categories of outputs:

  • ILRI published reports and publications (print and digital)
  • ILRI PowerPoint presentations
  • ILRI posters
  • ILRI videos and films

For photographs on Flickr, the "attribution, non-commercial" license is used, primarily to safeguard against the commercial use of images of people who may not have given consent for such use.

Except for photos, the appropriate Creative Commons licence is:
