We are delighted to license much of the documentation on Simple random talk (SRT) under terms that explicitly encourage people to take, modify, reuse, re-purpose, and remix our work as they see fit.
You will find the following notification at the bottom of many pages on the SRT website:
When you see a page with this notification you are free to use almost everything on the page in your own work. For example, you could quote the text in a book, cut-and-paste sections to your blog, record it as an audio book for the visually impaired, or even translate it into Yoruba. After all, that’s the essence of open content licenses . We just require that you give us attribution when you reuse our work.
You may also find the ensuing notification on the bottom of some pages:
Except as otherwise noted, the content of this page is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License, and code samples are licensed under the Apache 2.0 License. For details, see our Site Policies.
When you see this notification, you are free to use the content, and in addition you are free to use the computer code that appears in the content (such as in examples) in the code of your own projects.
We say “almost everything” as there are a few simple conditions that apply.
Brand features are not included in this license. In some cases, a page may include content with images, audio or video material, or a link to content on a different webpage (such as videos or slide decks). This content is not covered by the license, unless explicitly noted.
Appropriate attribution is required when you reuse/create revised versions of content on a page made available under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution license. The complete requirements for attribution can be found in section 4 of the Creative Commons legal code.
We ask that in practice you make available attribution to Simple Random Talk to the best of the ability of the channels in which you are creating your project.
There are so many ways in which this might apply:
Exact Reproductions/Modified Versions
If your online work exactly reproduces/modifies text or images from this site, in whole or in part, please include a paragraph at the bottom of your page that reads:
Also, please link back to the original source page so that readers can refer to it for more information.
If you create non-hypertext works, such as books, audio, or video, we require that you make a best effort to include a spoken or written attribution in the spirit of the information above.
