Clicklaw Wikibooks Copyright Guide
One of the most important aspects of Clicklaw Wikibooks is that it encourages Creative Commons copyright licences, which are designed to encourage sharing and reuse of information. Not all titles are subject to Creative Commons, but most are, and indicate so at the bottom of their pages.
Creative Commons copyright licences give creators a simple, standardized way to grant copyright permissions to their creative work. Every Creative Commons licence helps creators retain copyright while allowing others to copy, distribute, and make some uses of their work — at least non-commercially.
Clicklaw Wikibooks indicate at the bottom of their pages the Creative Commons licence for that specific work.
